Together we establish real solutions in the industrial sector

Tech founders and hidden champions require growth capital and industry access while industry players need innovative solutions to stay competitive – we bring them together and voice their needs within the ecosystem.

PwC Holdings Germany GmbH is PwC Germany’s investment unit for growth capital (in compliance with the applicable professional regulations). We establish innovative solutions in the industrial sector with targeted growth capital, tailor-made exit plans as well as industry and expert access. 

Instead of unicorn hype and short-term returns, our decisions are guided by reason and sustainability.

The innovativeness and digital future of the industry can only be secured and shaped together. Therefore we are convinced that existing communication gaps between growth companies, established industrial players and industry experts must be overcome.
