We provide you with comprehensive support for your venture investment

Almost half of CEOs worldwide are convinced that their company will no longer be viable in ten years if it continues on its current course. This is the conclusion of the 27th Global CEO Survey by PwC. Global megatrends are forcing companies to reinvent their business models.

Against this backdrop, established companies are increasingly opting to collaborate with start-ups. This gives them access to future technologies, digital talent and knowledge – a decisive step towards securing their own future viability.

Investing in start-ups is a way of remaining innovative and gaining strategic advantages in the face of geopolitical uncertainties, rapid technological change and increased global competition.

Venture capital market loses momentum – but still offers numerous opportunities

Our Venture Capital Market Study shows: The German venture capital market has recently lost its resilience: Compared to 2022, both the number and volume of VC transactions have declined significantly in 2023. Other indicators also point to a decline in the resilience of the VC market: insolvencies have risen significantly, while the prices realised have fallen sharply and significantly fewer company sales and IPOs have taken place overall.

Sustainable and long-term business models sought

Nevertheless, the venture capital market offers numerous opportunities for established companies. However, it is important to observe a few rules of the game. In view of the currently lower expected returns, for example, it makes sense to focus on capital-efficient, sustainable and long-term business models. In view of the current crises, start-ups in the fields of climate technology, mobility and logistics as well as biotechnology and medical technology are currently particularly attractive.

You want to directly invest in a start-up or sector-specific VC-fonds as part of your investment strategy? You are planning the launch of a new CVC-fond or want to invest in venture capital fonds as part of your innovation strategy? Our venture deals experts guide you along your way with their extensive experience in venture deals structuring and counceling.
