Currently, GB & Partners runs five private equity and venture capital investment funds at an aggregate initial capital of some 80 bn HUF (~300 M EUR).

Our two venture capital investment funds had launched under the aegis of the EU’s JEREMIE programme, while our other three private equity investment funds are backed by internationally active institutional and private investors. The investment periods for the two JEREMIE funds were closed in 2016 without any further investments. The key focus is on business development and exits ever since.

Not only our investment philosophy but our funds’ transaction limits and goals too are  adjusted to international trends. The Exim Cross-border PE Fund, the KIM PE Fund and the GBP I PE Fund explicitly target projects with foreign expansion as a primary strategic focus. Exim Fund’s investments are Hungarian companies planning to enter or expand in foreign markets while GBP I Fund’s spectrum of possible investments extend national markets.

JEREMIE Magvető / JEREMIE Seed VC Fund

Launch year: 2013
Initial capital: 2,2 bn HUF
Investment period closed.

All available funds have been invested into 37 projects. This Fund invested primarily into start-ups or seed-stage business ventures under the JEREMIE directives, up to 150 K EUR per individual project. The investment period ended on 31 May 2016 and the fund terminates in 2023. Although not all its investments rose to success, not unusual when investing into start-up projects, some indeed attracted the attention of third-party investors and closed stage two investments to further finance their growth.
