Venture Capital Funds

Our funds participate with a minority interest (20-49%) in promising, innovative business-to-business companies. Often the investment will be done in cooperation with other private equity firms or informal investors. If your company has a competitive advantage (niche / top-3 position in a(n) (inter)national market / special technique or patent) and is established in the Netherlands, then we would like to arrange an appointment.

Our expertise and experience is primarily focused on the following sectors:

  • ICT
  • High Tech manufacturing industry
  • Agro Tech
  • Environment & Sustainability
  • B-2-B services with added value (ICT or intellectual property)

We search for the best solution for the company. Therefore, we often start with a corporate finance and business development process, in order to assess which (financing) instrument is best applicable. In some cases, the best solution may be our own investment fund. Our closed funds are the Stimulus- and Eindhoven Venture Capital Fund. Our active fund is the Eindhoven Venture Capital Fund II.

ECFG Venture Capital BV and its funds are covered by AFM guidelines. Additionally we report to the DNB. EVCF Growth Capital BV is a fund registered under the regulation Seed Capital Technostarters.





Climate Tech Innovation Fund (CTIF)

In 10 years, Dutch CO2 emissions must be halved. In 30 years it should be close to zero. Companies with CO2-reducing products, services or processes face the same growth challenges as other early stage companies. To contribute to these goals, ECFG will set up a new fund in 2021: the Climate Tech Innovation Fund (CTIF).

In order to achieve their objectives, and thus CO2 reduction, companies are financed, guided and supported within the scope of the fund. Scalability is essential here. We are looking for a balance between efficiency and CO2 reduction. CO2 reduction is a precondition.

CTIF invests in:

  • CO2-reducing companies with opportunities,
  • for above average financial return,
  • based upon the right product/technique/market-combination.

CTIF participates when:

  • Based on a proof-of-climate impact in the use phase of the product.
  • The company has a proper management team.
  • The investment has calculable, acceptable risk moments.
  • A growth path for the company seems plausible.
  • An exit is realistic after 5 to 7 years.

Essential terms to be investment-worthy:

  • CO2-reducing.
  • Well experienced management team.
  • Proof-of-product, -market, -technology.
  • Proven business model/revenue model.
  • Ready for internationalization.
  • Provable acceleration model

By these conditions in place, an attractive proposition is created for a larger party to strategically takeover the company in the medium term.
