Founded in 2003, Cipio Partners has been backing European growth stage technology companies for over 16 years. We provide growth capital and minority buyout solutions to companies that have outgrown the venture stage and need a strong partner to support them through their journey to scale their business ahead of a liquidity event. As a financial investor, we provide capital, but we also bring decades of experience as tech company investors, owners and operators. No two transactions are alike, and we love complex transactions that offer liquidity solutions to existing shareholders while also providing growth capital support towards creating a near-term liquidity event in the future.
Cipio Partners is an independent and partner-owned firm with decades of investment and operational experience in the global technology industry. We operate as one team, work closely with entrepreneurs and can take decisions quickly.
As a team, we have accompanied more than 50 technology businesses through their growth stage and have seen them through successfully to exits.
The companies we target address large market opportunities in the broader information technology industry. Typical sectors include software, technology enabled B2B products & services, components and consumer internet. We back European companies with proven products and business models, meaningful revenues and a path to profitability.
Our capital enables companies to accelerate growth and build sizeable businesses, realign their shareholder base and provide liquidity options for early investors, or both. Our initial investments range from €3 million to €10 million. We maintain substantial reserves to continue investing in the future growth and expansion of these companies.
