We engage in listed technology companies

German Technology AG makes substantial investments in listed technology companies with the aim of actively accompanying their further development. Many companies possess valuable know-how, but it often takes an improvement in the structural framework to unleash unused potential. For this reason, we see ourselves as an investor who initiates necessary actions and thus sets the guidelines for successful corporate development, but not necessarily as best owner from the industrial perspective.

Together with management and employees, we want to implement a value management system that forms the basis for sustainable value creation and long-term future success. We neither have a predetermined investment horizon nor a specific exit scenario – a central aspect in which we differ from private equity investors.

Our team consists of internationally experienced managers with proven industry expertise as well as investment experts.
