VenturesDeutsche Börse Group – your place for growth

New content item
Innovations need investors who believe in the long-term value of an idea. Therefore, we have launched Deutsche Börse Venture Network, which currently connects more than 100 attractive growth and later-stage, or pre-IPO, companies from various sectors with 200 investors. Deutsche Börse’s Venture Match service facilitates financing rounds involving investors and growth companies. In addition, DB1 Ventures, the newly instituted corporate venture capital arm of Deutsche Börse, aims to be the strategic partner of choice for early- to growth-stage companies. Its aim is to invest in companies which are core or adjacent to Deutsche Börse Group’s strategy, generate attractive investment returns and add strategic value to the Group’s growth plans.

Deutsche Börse Group’s objective is to establish a working ecosystem for growth companies in Germany and Europe, which closely supports companies throughout all growth phases up to an IPO – thereby generating more exchange listings. That is why we are constantly trying to source, execute and manage new opportunities for Deutsche Börse Group in the venture ecosystem. Our focus is set on areas of strategic interest to the Group to help drive innovation.
