eCAPITAL maintains numerous alliances with industry experts, leading universities and research institutions, as well as banks and issuing houses, M&A agencies and other VC firms. These partners support us partly in counselling and promoting our portfolio companies and contribute significantly to the generation of our high-quality deal flow.
We are a member of the Federal Association of German Capital Investment Companies (“Bundesverband der Kapitalbeteiligungsgesellschaften” or “BVK”) and Invest Europe. We also work closely with the BAND/BAAR networks. We have long-standing relationships and cooperations with KfW, BMWi and NRW.Bank in various constellations. There is also a cooperation with Demeter Partners (France). These alliances result in numerous opportunities for interesting network contacts, positive synergies and a constant deal flow.
In addition to contacts to other VC firms, the eCAPITAL network offers many ties to co-investors from a wide array of sectors. Both, the general network and the limited partner base of eCAPITAL are composed of active and former entrepreneurs, many of whom also commit themselves via direct investments in the portfolio companies.
