Participium builds great companies with interesting long-term potential, together with “patient-money” investors, “business-leader” managers, and several creative partners and mid-field organizations. We start from the creation of a great idea, and commit ourselves for the long term. We are the business venture equivalent of DBMF building project developers: we Design a company, Build it together with the right people, Maintain it for the longer term and take care of the Financing.

We try to find the optimal mix of long-term or mid-term investors with motivated business leaders who create client value together with a team of fine people.


Reporting and informing are key. We hired an experienced controller and keep our financiers updated on a regular basis.


No fast exits or explosive growth for us. We aim at mid-term or long-term equity value increments and want to stay committed on the long term.
