We believe in the transformative future of European technology companies
Cipio Partners has been backing European growth stage technology firms for over 18 years. The companies we target address large market opportunities across 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 clear path to profitability.
We structure and design the appropriate transaction for each situation because no two investments are alike
Each company is unique. Leveraging decades of experience as operators and investors, we structure transactions that best address the target company’s need and combine skills usually found at growth capital, secondary and tech buyout funds.
We target growth stage technology firms that need both, capital to grow their business and liquidity for longstanding shareholders in order to realign the investor syndicate around another 3-5 years of business expansion. Cipio Partners’ capital enables companies to accelerate growth and build sizeable businesses. It also facilitates exits by early backers, providing them with the ability to redeploy their capital elsewhere.
We are more than just capital. We also work diligently to ensure that the right management team is in place to achieve growth targets. We typically join our portfolio company boards and apply our decades of experience in building and exiting technology companies to accelerate scaling growth and eventually positioning the business for a high value exit.
Our initial investments range from €5 million to €15 million with substantial reserves to continue investing in subsequent rounds.
We believe in the values of partnership and live it internally and externally
We are an independent 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.
We live the idea of partnership internally as well as with our investees and co-investors. We expect our management teams to be sharp, driven, transparent and highly responsive. We want to be measured by the same standard.
Finally, we feel a high level of responsibility to our investors who have entrusted us with their capital.
