eCAPITAL with new corporate designeCAPITAL NEWS
Previously, an internal working group from the eCAPITAL team had refined the mission statement and the positioning of the leading German technology investor who has been active in the venture capital market for 20 years. eCAPITAL gained recognition as lead investor through such successful exits as that of the company Novaled from Dresden to Samsung, at the time the most successful German technology VC exit of recent years, or the sale of the company sonnen to Shell New Energies last year. The exit of the company sonnen was the largest German start-up exit 2019 among the start-ups younger than 15 years and was awarded as Europe’s Cleantech Deal of the Year.
Not only are new technologies and their applications developing rapidly, but the demands on the digital appearance of the market partners are also facing ever new challenges. The corporate design is an essential aspect in this regard, as it is visible and emotional.

In the revision of the corporate design and the new conception of the website, eCAPITAL was supported by the Lit Design Studio. Tom Hoßfeld, Founding Partner at Lit, adds:
“The rebranding focuses on the idea of partnership and cooperation at eye level and further develops the brand, especially with regard to its application in the digital space. The focus lies on the simplified “e” as a super symbol, which combines the company name and claim, but also serves well as a responsive icon across all touchpoints. The bright blue builds a bridge to the brand’s origin, but, especially in combination with the characteristic blue line, it has an activating, stringent and groundbreaking effect.”
Since the inception of eCAPITAL with a first fund of 10 million EURO and the new start in 2004 with Fund II amounting to 40 million EURO, the company has developed positively and sustainably. Currently, eCAPITAL is investing a total of 130 million euros from Fund IV and, in parallel, with a special fund Cybersecurity and is successfully managing a portfolio of 32 technology companies with a focus on the DACH region. The partner-managed independent venture capital company from Münster is thus one of the oldest and most experienced VC investors in Germany.
Even though the venture capital market has developed dynamically since the restart and with it eCAPITAL - our guiding principles developed at that time have not changed. We want to be a reliable and active entrepreneurial companion for our founders and a constant and trusted partner for our investors.
