The “Opportunity Makers” tour makes a stop in Münster

The BVK (German Private Equity and Venture Capital Association) “is the voice and face of the private equity industry in Germany.”…

It promotes communication and networking between members “so that the investment industry in Germany grows closer together.” (Source: Homepage of the German Private Equity and Venture Capital Association)

But how can you promote communication and networking and maintain contact with members and partners if activities necessary for this can no longer take place since March 2020? BVK has become inventive in times of need and now maintains contact with members not within the framework of large events, but travels through Germany with the “Opportunity Makers” bus and talks to members on site about what opportunities are possible through private equity.

eCAPITAL AG has been a member of the BVK for more than 15 years and appreciates the numerous events as well as the extensive and informative studies and evaluations on the investment industry in Germany that the BVK regularly makes available to its members.

The cooperation with the BVK and its partners and members constantly results in opportunities for interesting network contacts, positive synergies and current deal flow and we very much appreciate the work of the BVK as a representative of the interests of our industry, not least in political Berlin.
