January, 4 2021 An Impressive 2020 for bm|t’s Investee-Partners

In 2020, bm|t´s Investee-Part­ners raised 55 Mio. EUR of equity and con­vert­ible cap­i­tal. This marks the fifth year in a row with over 40 Mio. EUR invest­ment in bm|t´s Investee-Part­ners. The invest­ments in 2020 were spread broadly across 32 com­pa­nies, includ­ing three new bm|t Investee-Part­ners. Funds man­aged by bm|t invested 24.9 Mio. EUR, and co-investors invested 30.2 Mio. EUR in a total of 43 invest­ment rounds. Impres­sively, 21 bm|t Investee-Part­ners raised seven-fig­ure sums in 2020 – this num­ber of larger rounds is an all-time record for bm|t.

„2020 was an impres­sive year for bm|t´s Investee-Part­ners, as many com­pa­nies demon­strated excep­tional resilience and cre­ativ­ity in the face of an uniquely chal­leng­ing envi­ron­ment,“ com­mented Kevin Reeder, bm|t´s CEO. Mr. Reeder con­tin­ued, “Achiev­ing this level of invest­ment dur­ing the Covid-19 pan­demic is an incred­i­bly strong tes­ta­ment to the strength and breadth of inno­v­a­tive com­pa­nies in Thürin­gen, and we at bm|t are very pleased with the results of the past year.”

„With the fifth con­sec­u­tive year of strong invest­ment activ­ity, it is clear that bm|t and the entire invest­ment ecosys­tem in Thürin­gen have made great strides over the last years.  Thürin­gen has undoubt­edly been dis­cov­ered by more pri­vate and insti­tu­tional investors as an attrac­tive loca­tion for invest­ment. We at bm|t are proud to play our part in this excel­lent devel­op­ment and to be ful­fill­ing our mis­sion of strength­en­ing Thüringen´s econ­omy through tar­geted invest­ments in inno­v­a­tive growth com­pa­nies,“ con­cluded Mr. Reeder.
