No guarantee of success – eCAPITAL scores with experience

In more than 20 years of company history eCAPITAL has looked at thousands of companies. Around five dozen of these became eCAPITAL investments. Only a few turned out to be bad investments, but many became significant players.

eCAPITAL has focused on German DeepTech from the beginning. The intellectual potential in Germany is there – no other country has such a large number of engineers as Germany – it just needs to be sufficiently promoted and developed. And the success proves eCAPITAL right. eCAPITAL is currently fundraising for its fifth fund with a target size of € 200 million. Fund V has already made its first investment and further exciting deals are in the pipeline.


Georg Meck, Editor-in-Chief of FOCUS MONEY, talked to eCAPITAL partners Paul-Josef Patt and Bernd Arkenau about this and many other topics. The result is an impressive article about eCAPITAL, exciting portfolio companies and the new fund. Please read the complete article here (only in german).

Founded in 1999, eCAPITAL is an entrepreneur-led venture capital investor focusing on early- and growth-stage deep-tech companies with a positive impact on society. eCAPITAL is based in Germany and invests with its own funds with a total volume of over € 280 million in the areas of Sustainability, Enterprise Software, Cybersecurity, IoT and New Materials.
