The team - consisting of the successful entrepreneurs behind Ampelmann and financial experts with a long-term track record at Kempen & Co - focuses on promising entrepreneurs who develop innovative industrial hardware solutions. This niche is still undiscovered and offers many attractive investment opportunities.

We participate with amounts between 250,000 euros and 2.5 million euros, with the aim of accelerating commercialization. We actively support our portfolio companies with our knowledge and experience in the field of techno-entrepreneurship and corporate finance.

Thanks to our intensive contacts with, among others, the technical universities, we have developed good insights into the potential opportunities in the market. Our first investment has already been realized in EAVE (intelligent hearing protection for the industry) and we expect to complete more investments in the coming months.

Parties interested in our fund are welcome to contact us about the possibilities for cooperation.
