BB Capital Investments facilitates the growth of Dutch companies into the next stage, by contributing our own knowledge and expertise as well as our broad network of experienced entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial families. We do this in an active manner and by empowering entrepreneurs.
The capital we invest has no duration limit or end date. This allows us to focus on the growth of companies and optimize the timing of exit.
Active investment management
We are a committed investor and support independent management teams on a monthly basis. The growth plan is jointly determined for each company, appropriate to each specific case.
We make capital available and offer an extensive network of (former) entrepreneurs and wealthy families.
BB Capital stands for Buy & Build Capital; an investment company for and by entrepreneurs set up to provide active entrepreneurial capital. BB Capital not only invests capital, but also wishes to contribute to the growth of a company by bringing in knowledge and industry experts from its network. As a result, BB Capital is actively involved in management. The focus of BB Capital differs significantly from the “regular” private equity companies because BB Capital wants to add value to the “core of the business” and focuses on returns instead of leverage. This results in a longer investment horizon than usual in the private equity world.
BB Capital Direct Investments is mainly active in the business services, software, ICT, FMCG, trade and healthcare sectors.
