This European venture capital fund, solely specialized in electronics and materials, is a dedicated and confined investment opportunity in terms of asset allocation within the private equity and corporate venturing space.
We believe that by managing relatively smaller pools of capital, and with our deep technology and sector knowledge, we will outperform the market by taking advantage of price and market inefficiencies in a segment left aside by the larger VCs.
We only invest in European seasoned teams with strategic and protected technologies and solutions for large replacement markets important to top class semiconductor and materials companies.
Whether you are a strategic investor or a financial investor, there are multiple reasons why you should follow-up on Capital-E.
Capital-E is focused on the semiconductor and materials industries that offer abundent opportunities to invest. These industries are marked by continuous waves of innovation in demand for venture capital. Left aside by larger VC’s, it is more than ever a buyer’s market. It is a confined allocation opportunity for fund to funds with an attractive risk/reward profile.
From a value-added perspective, hardware is more than ever a reciprocal complement to software marked by the recent moves of Intel, Apple, Samsung, Google and Microsoft. Most of the acquisitions done were to appropriate solid intellectual property assets and because electronic devices are the personal gatekeepers to consumers. For strategic investors in our funds such as IMEC, we can be the ears and eyes to capture strategic technologies accross Europe.
