For companies that want to
be the best, there is a world to be won.


Investing in your opportunities, together.

Gilde Equity Management is an independent private equity company that invests in businesses that are rooted in the Benelux and have international aspirations. We do this in cases of business succession, privatization or management buyouts. We love companies that are fuelled by a love for what they do. Where people are proud of what they do or make. Where entrepreneurship is key. We invest capital, energy and our trust to help these companies and their management to flourish all over the world.

We put
people first.

People are at the center of what we do. It’s our belief that everyone can make a difference, from the top to the floor. We invest our heart and soul into what we do and we are genuinely involved in the business. The relationships we establish are meant to last a lifetime.

We love craftsmanship.

We enjoy working with people that love and live for what they do. That’s how we are too. We always aim to translate substance into growth. To us, durable success starts with the love with which people work together towards the best possible results.

We always
want to win.

We encourage entrepreneurs to look further, think bigger, and want to be even better. There is always room for improvement, that ethos is etched into our DNA. Giving up is never an option, we keep going where others stop. That’s how we underscore long-term success.

It all starts with personal chemistry.

A successful collaboration starts with a good conversation, not a spreadsheet. We want to know what drives you and your company. What potential do we see, together? What are your ambitions? We want to get to know the people behind your organization, see that twinkle in your eye, up close and personal. Our personal connection allows us to translate your craftsmanship into the capacity to win.
