With Wendel Growth1, Wendel invests directly or via funds in innovative, high-growth companies. Initiated in 2013, Wendel Growth has, to date, mainly made commitments to several high-quality technology and growth investment funds.
Wendel Growth is now looking for direct investment and co-investment opportunities in start-ups. Wendel’s ambition is to invest up to €50 million per investment in scale-ups in Europe and North America. In parallel, Wendel Growth will continue to invest in funds.
Wendel Growth’s objective is twofold:
- to diversify Wendel’s portfolio by gaining exposure to high-growth assets, generally with a digital component or with disruptive business models; and
- to develop the expertise of Wendel’s teams and those of its portfolio companies in terms of technological innovations that can impact or improve the Group’s value creation profile.
