January, 4 2022 A record year 2021 for bm|t’s Investee Partners

In 2021, bm|t’s Investee-Part­ners raised over EUR 140 mil­lion in equity and mez­za­nine cap­i­tal. This out­stand­ing amount rep­re­sents a new record! The invest­ments were dis­trib­uted among 37 com­pa­nies, includ­ing seven new bm|t Investee-Part­ners. Funds man­aged by bm|t invested ca. EUR 29 mil­lion and co-investors invested ca. EUR 112 mil­lion. Impres­sively, 25 bm|t Investee-Part­ners raised seven-fig­ure sums in 2021, which is also a new record for bm|t. bmt also real­ized five exits in 2021 that returned over EUR 16 Mio.

“2021 was a very impres­sive and sat­is­fy­ing year for our Investee-Part­ners, with many com­pa­nies demon­strat­ing excep­tional resilience, cre­ativ­ity, and even strong growth in some cases, in what con­tin­ues to be a chal­leng­ing envi­ron­ment,” com­mented Kevin Reeder, CEO of bm|t. Reeder con­tin­ued, “Achiev­ing this level of invest­ment dur­ing the Covid 19 pan­demic is a clear tes­ta­ment to the strength and diver­sity of inno­v­a­tive com­pa­nies in Thürin­gen, and we are very pleased with the results of the past year. We at bm|t are also very grate­ful, because these results would not be pos­si­ble with­out the strong col­lab­o­ra­tion with our val­ued partners.”

“The very high level of invest­ment activ­ity in 2021 proves again that bm|t and the whole invest­ment ecosys­tem in Thürin­gen have made great progress in the last years. One can absolutely say that Thürin­gen has become an attrac­tive inno­va­tion invest­ment des­ti­na­tion. We at bm|t are proud to play our part in this excel­lent devel­op­ment and to ful­fill our mis­sion of strength­en­ing Thüringen’s econ­omy through tar­geted invest­ments in inno­v­a­tive growth com­pa­nies,” Reeder concluded.
