As a long-term oriented entrepreneurial holding company, German Startups Group holds stakes in some of the – in our view – most promising German startups and takes an active part in increasing their shareholder value.
The digital revolution causes profound changes. Young technology companies are the driving force for the future growth of employment, tax revenues, individual wealth, and therefore prosperity.
Due to the Internet’s advance into all areas, startups revolutionize products and value creation processes with their innovative strength, thereby reshaping markets and redistributing entrepreneurial wealth.
Our holdings constitute a stage-agnostic cross-section of, in our view, promising German startups – from the seed stage, in which the product is developed, to the early and then growth stage, in which startups already enjoying success undergo high-speed growth.
