Established in 2010, HPE Growth is a leading pan-European private equity firm focused on expansion/growth capital investments in technology companies throughout Northern Western Europe with assets under management in excess of EUR 500 million.
HPE invests in high-growth software and internet-enabled businesses that have shaken off the risks associated with early, venture-type investments and have an option to leverage their proven technology and the status of a (local) champion. By bringing in additional equity and active support, HPE acts as a catalyst to expansion and enables portfolio companies to execute on their vision of securing market leadership. Typically, HPE aims to deploy about EUR 10 to 45 million in equity per transaction for a meaningful minority or majority position.
HPE’s team has diverse backgrounds with international experience in Investing (General Atlantic, TPG), Finance (Morgan Stanley, ING) and Operations (Walt Disney, Shell) and a global network supported through its regional offices in Amsterdam (HQ), Düsseldorf and San Francisco.
