Berlin, 4 July 2019 – The managing general partner of German Startups Group GmbH & Co. KGaA (ISIN DE000A1MMEV4 / WKN A1M MEV), a leading venture capital provider in Germany and Berlin-based digital agency with 150 employees, has resolved to triple the initial volume of the currently running public share purchase offer and, therefore, to now acquire up to 900,115 shares.
