We are your partners for
courageous entrepreneurship

Cologne Invest GmbH is a venture capital business run by the owners.

We are successful entrepreneurs with wide and international experience in start up businesses through to their growth and expansion and are very familiar with all the challenges of being a business owner.

Since we invest only our own money, our decision-making processes are short and flexible adapted to the situation.


Our international business experience makes us stand out from the crowd

We have many years of experience as founders and owners of a group of companies with many successful individual enterprises. We are conversant in a broad range of business requirements, from the very first steps through to the sale of the business.

Our extensive network enables fast and pragmatic access to experts and opinion leaders in a variety of countries and branches. Long-term residence and international professional experience has contributed to our broad intercultural experience and knowledge.

We can provide you with a highly professional, efficient and specialist service to help you with project management, governance and implementation of your projects, founding and financing the growth of your business, as well as strategic investment, mentoring negotiations and with mergers and acquisitions (M&A).
