Your targets

Corporate Succession

Succession planning for your own company is rarely unfettered by emotions. This makes it all the more important to know what your options are – and to consciously choose the option that will give you long-term happiness. We can give you guidance here, with the following advice.

Growth and internationalization

Does your company have the potential for “more”? How easily you can grow your company depends not least on the availability of capital. If you rely on debt, you will quickly reach your limits. Equity and mezzanine financing, on the other hand, make it easier and faster to implement investment plans for internationalization or new production opportunities.

Changing the shareholder structure

A change in the shareholder structure often heralds a new era. However, such a change can also significantly weaken both a company’s ability to act and its financial strength. Both situations can be avoided by choosing the right financing solution.

Our services

Direct investments

As an equity investor valued for our expertise and reliability, we support companies in the implementation of their growth plans. At the same time, you – the entrepreneur – continue to enjoy operational and decision-making freedom. Whether we hold a majority or minority stake, we do not interfere with day-to-day management and we remain a temporary shareholder.


With mezzanine financing you combine the advantages of equity and debt – together with high flexibility with regards to important conditions. You can fund long-term investment plans or strengthen the company’s capital structure without having to relinquish any company shares.

Regional offering

Small and medium-sized innovative tech and growth companies can strengthen their economic base with mezzanine and direct investments of up to 1.5 million euros. To this end, VR Equitypartner, together with the Bavarian State Ministry of Economic Affairs and Media, Energy and Technology, has set up a fund with a double-digit million euro volume.
