Gilde has been investing in
borderless entrepreneurship since 1982.

This is where we come from.

Gilde has been a pioneer in private equity since 1982. Our founders showed the Netherlands how companies with potential could benefit from private equity and flourish in their respective markets. Since 1996, as Gilde Equity Management, we’ve been investing in mid-sized and large enterprises that are rooted in the Benelux and have international aspirations. We are energized by enabling promising companies to exploit their potential and become leaders in their fields. Our investments have taken us all over the world, enabling us to build up a unique network that helps every enterprise we work with forward.

This is our promise.

We embrace companies with the right potential and help them conquer the world. From a position of genuine commitment, we invest in the product or service, process, distribution, software or marketing ... In fact, in anything and everything that makes a company stand-out in its market. Above all, we invest in the team. The right people in the right places, at the head and at the heart of the company. Working together, we take entrepreneurship to the highest level.

We love working with people who grasp opportunities
with both hands. People who want to win. People like us.

This is how we work together.
