AURELIUS Wachstumskapital at a glance

AURELIUS Wachstumskapital is an investment company for SMEs based in Germany, Austria or Switzerland. Our financial support is amplified by our extensive entrepreneurial experience, helping to accelerate growth plans and leverage operational potential. As partners to owners and entrepreneurs, we actively support as needed and provide access to our network to enable the management to focus fully on the operational business of the company.

AURELIUS Wachstumskapital is backed by entrepreneurial families based in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and so investments are made with long-term partnership in mind rather than in line with time-bound fund terms.


Succession / Owner Buy-out

Handing over one’s own company and life’s work is a very big personal step. Many entrepreneurs do not have a clear successor in the family or company who can provide the appropriate financing.

We are an experienced partner who can design a suitable transaction structure tailored to your circumstances and plans. Whether you want to step away or remain involved with the business and thus benefit from its continued growth, we can help. We can support owner buy-outs, assist with succession planning, support second-tier management involvement, and can assist with share financing.

Growth Financing

Many successful companies have a firm plan for sustainable growth. Sometimes they may require outside investment, and we are happy to discuss how our experience and funding can support your growth plans.

Over the years we have increased the value of many companies in a variety of ways, including growth through buy-and-build, whereby businesses can expand their geographic footprint or offering through acquiring other businesses. We are highly experienced in this area so you can continue to focus on your operational business.

Management Buyouts / Management Buy-ins

We strive to support ambitious managers in acquiring equity shares in a company. This can be done both in a company in which you are already employed as a manager (management buy-out) or in a company in which you are not yet active (so-called management buy-in).

In both cases, we can bring expertise gained through numerous transactions to craft a bespoke transaction structure to reflect your individual circumstances as well as the company’s ambitions. We can also act as a sounding board as you plan your company’s growth journey.

What we do

Growth Support

Organic growth: Supporting management in analysing market potential as well as in developing and implementing market entry strategies.

Internationalisation: Support in the geographic expansion of the business as well as market entry at the local level.

Acquisitions/add-ons: Acquisitions are an essential part of a holistic growth strategy and often add value as a horizontal or vertical extension of the business. As an experienced partner, we can assist in driving a consolidation of your market.

Sounding board for Operational Cooperation

The depth and breadth of the AURELIUS portfolio provides rich access to operational experts in the areas of IT, organisation, financing, sales, human resources, procurement and strategy.

We see ourselves not only as an investor, but also as an entrepreneurially experienced, competent and independent sounding board who provides sustainable support to the management.

Together with AURELIUS Wachstumskapital, we were able to develop G+N into a leading group of companies in the security technology sector. We were able to continue our operational business independently in a proven manner and use the support of AURELIUS in the professionalisation of our structures and acquisitive growth. In addition to the joint success, it is the trusting and appreciative interaction that characterises the cooperation.
