THE GERMAN PRIVATE EQUITY AND VENTURE CAPITAL LANDSCAPE 2016 – LONDON
Dear Sir or Madam,
Together with the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany London, the German Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (BVK) looks forward to informing UK-based LPs about the German private equity and venture capital landscape in London next week (18 October 2016).
Minister Dr Norman Walter, Head of Economic Affairs at the German Embassy, has sent you the official invitation by email.
The evening reception will begin at 6.30 pm at the German Embassy London and you still have the chance to register: We cordially invite you to the buffet reception "The German Private Equity and Venture Capital Landscape 2016”. Should you be unable to attend in person, a colleague of you is cordially welcomed instead. We look forward to hearing from you.
The evening offers 25 Limited Partners the unique opportunity to meet leading German private equity managers:
- Wilken von Hodenberg | Spokesman of the BVK and Member of the Supervisory Board of Deutsche Beteiligungs AG (DBAG)
- Georg Ganghofer | Investment Director of Brockhaus Private Equity
- Dr. Fabian Heilemann | Partner of Earlybird
- Ulrike Hinrichs | Executive Member of BVK Board
- Nicholas Money-Kyrle | Founding Partner of Steadfast Capital
- Dr. Ingo Potthof | Managing Partner of UnternehmerTUM GmbH
- Tobias Schirmer | Partner of JOIN Capital
- Dirk Schmücking | Partner of Digital+ Partners
- Reinhilde Spatscheck | Managing Partner of SHS Gesellschaft für Beteiligungsmanagement
German industry is known worldwide for its innovative quality products and services. As the strongest European economy, Germany is highly competitive internationally. This includes German private equity and venture capital firms who have proven that they are able to offer their investors above average returns. With its broad and sound industrial basis, the German private equity market is one of the most attractive in Europe. Berlin is becoming one of the key entrepreneurial hubs for start-up businesses globally.
Due to the lack of a capital-based state pension system and in the absence of German state pension funds, international investors are in the pole position to get access to the leading private equity and venture capital firms. As in other asset classes, the choice of funds is essential for the success of private equity investments. German private equity firms know the markets and corporate landscape well and they are able to use their outstanding expertise to assist UK-based investors. We look forward to updating you on the state of the German economy and investment opportunities in German private equity and venture capital funds.
