What is CGC


CGC invests in asset-light, scalable and high growth technology enabled B2B service companies.

We believe that digitalization and technology will be a key driver for the sustainable success of any company. Recent events will serve as a catalyst for disruption through tech-enabled business models and transformation of traditional businesses. We will build a portfolio of investments which will benefit from these trends.

We believe that value generation can best be achieved via growth and in accordance with this conviction we will build a balanced portfolio of disruptive young companies as well as traditional businesses with strong transformational capabilities.

Our team is well positioned to capture such opportunities. Through our extensive experience in private equity as well as our early stage network we will avoid hype investments and prudently deploy capital into proven business models where product development as well as full-scale commercialization has been accomplished. We only invest in businesses which have positive unit economics and which have proven to be able to operate with profitability. We will also invest in traditional business where technology can enable superior organic and inorganic growth rates.

With our network being strongest in the DACH region we will focus on targets which are headquartered in this region using our proprietary and early access to attractive growth companies.

We invest alongside founders, HNWIs, Family Offices or other experienced growth investors and have the support of a highly dedicated and diverse advisory board who are also investors in our fund.

Our investors include senior professionals with experience at blue-chip companies like SAP, Bain, Apax, Klarna, Lieferando, Deloitte, BZ Bank, McK, Greenhill, EY, etc.

We have closed our first investment in Sherpany, a market leader for software-based meeting management tools for SMEs and large corporates in Switzerland.

We can deploy EUR 10 to 50m of capital per transaction alone or in a consortium with co-investors.
