ENDEIT CAPITAL STARTS SECOND FUND


Amsterdam/Hamburg, August 28, 2015. As of today, Van den Ende & Deitmers will continue as Endeit Capital and announces the start of its second investment fund. The new fund focuses exclusively on providing growth capital to companies in the Internet industry and has an initial size of €107 million.

Partly inspired by the strong performance of Fund I, a group of investors joined Endeit Capital co-founder Hubert Deitmers as an investor in the second fund. The cornerstone investors are Joop van den Ende and the European Investment Fund. In addition, a number of founders of portfolio companies in Fund I, including the founders of Eyeworks, Metrixlab and Improve Digital, became investor in Endeit Fund II. Several other highly successful entrepreneurs have joined, including the founder of Drukwerkdeal. Finally, the entire investment team is also involved as a shareholder.

With offices in Amsterdam and Hamburg, the fund focuses in particular on the Benelux and Germany. Based on the thesis 'the connected consumer', the fund mainly focuses on companies that are active in the field of digital media & marketing, online commerce and services, edtech and mobile.

Hubert Deitmers: ' Despite the remarkable journey that the internet has already taken, we are still just at the beginning of the developments in this field. A good example is that of the total retail market worldwide, online retail sales still accounts for 6%* only (excluding travel and ticket sales), while the market at the same time faces many big established online players. In my view there is no reason why this percentage wouldn’t at least double in the next three to four years. Many other sectors will be disrupted as well. For example, through the digitization of education, digitization in the financial world and the increase in the number of online applications in the medical field. I am therefore convinced that in the coming years, many interesting Internet companies can show strong growth. We very much would like to help them.”
