Investments in the Mittelstand

Equity Capital

Adiuva Capital has been providing equity capital to medium-sized companies since 2011 – the mandate that is reflected in our name (Latin adiuvare: to help, support, assist). The focus of Adiuva is the acquisition of majority and minority stakes in  growing medium-sized companies primarily in German-speaking countries.

Long-term investments

Our investors are seasoned entrepreneurs. This allows us to take a long term view on value creation. We are never driven to sell our investments within a specific time frame. We are completely independent of institutional interests.

Track Record and Portfolio

We invest across a wide range of industries and different scenarios. Adiuva has raised over EUR 800 million and invested in more than 20 enterprises since inception. We are currently invested in 12 medium-sized companies.

Our main investment criteria

  • EUR 10 – 100 million equity per transaction
  • Majority and minority stakes in        cooperation with entrepreneurs and entrepreneurially-minded managers

Statements of our
entrepreneurs about us

``We chose to work with Adiuva, because they have a family business tradition and have shown to be very fair throughout the investment process. This was also confirmed in the very successful years that followed their initial investment. With their financial and management support, we built up a strong real estate division, opened many new homes and significantly increased our turnover and earnings. As a result, in 2017, advita was voted ‘Operator of the Year.’``
Dr. Matthias Faensen

Founder advita Pflegedienst

``With Adiuva, we have found an entrepreneurial partner with extensive experience in the fibre optics market. The team has offered us their pragmatic and flexible support in financing, acquisitions and the strategic development of our company.``
Felix Stiegeler

Founder & Managing Director Stiegeler Internet Services

``The Adiuva team is a great sparrings partner and enables us to have exchanges at eye level. They don't interfere in the day-to-day business operations but support the development of strategic framework parameters with their network and expertise.``
Dr. Achim Mayr

Advisory Board & former Managing Director Lebensbaum

``The cooperation with Adiuva has been productive from the beginning, as we share the same values. For me, it was important to have a new shareholder who understands the company and doesn't only see itself as a typical financial investor.``
Ulrich Walter

Founder Lebensbaum

We look forward to talking with you.
