We invest in partnership

We support our portfolio companies in all matters relating to financing and growth – in the long term and out of conviction. Even in challenging times, founders can count on us. Because we know that founding a company is not a sprint, but a marathon.

The venture capital is intended to enable companies to engineer promising, innovative products and production processes and to introduce them to the international market and thus to grow as a company. The main parts of these start-up/scale-up innovation projects must be carried out in Bavaria. 

Ticket size

We offer Bavarian founders and technology companies investment concepts tailored to the situation with ticket sizes ranging from EUR 250,000 to EUR 25 million. 

With our financial support and valuable partnership, a sustainable development through the various phases of growth from the start to becoming an internationally successful technology leader is possible.

Joint investment

When it comes to financing, we always act as a co-investor together with private investors. From the seed to the scale-up phase, we can therefore accompany investments not only as an experienced venture capitalist with 30 years of expertise, but also with a strong network of private investors. 

We invest according to the pari-passu principle. In the case of a financing round, this means that all parties involved are treated equally and must invest the same amount of capital as Bayern Kapital. This creates transparency and makes Bayern Kapital a valued co-investor.


The industries we finance include biotechnology and life sciences, medical technology, software and IT, environmental and nanotechnology, materials and new materials. 

As a matter of principle, the funds of Bayern Kapital are only involved as minority shareholders. The holding period for the investments is usually five to ten years.
