The German Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (BVK) is the voice and face of the private equity sector in Germany.

  • We campaign for improvements to the fiscal environment and easier access to private equity so that even more companies in Germany can benefit from private equity.
  • We take a stand on policy issues and the media in an effort to underline just how important private equity is for the German economy.
  • We monitor the market and analyse its trends because private equity is a growth engine for innovation, start-ups and SMEs.
  • We encourage our members to share their experiences with each other to help the private equity sector in Germany grow closer together.

Events like (the BVK’s) German Private Equity Day provide the opportunity for participants to network, share ideas and experiences, find out about the issues concerning others in the industry and seize inspiration.

Dr. Volker Wissing MdB

Minister for Digital Affairs & Transport at the 23rd German Equity Day of the BVK

The state is reaching the limits of what it is fiscally able to do – making it all the more important to mobilise private equity to enact transformational change.

Christian Lindner

Minister of Finance in an interview with the BVK

We will not (be able to) save the environment unless the capital and finance markets play a key role. And for the investments required, we need the best capital markets. That includes optimum conditions for venture capital and private equity.

Bettina Stark-Watzinger

Minister of Education and Research in her keynote speech

SMEs with their entrepreneurs are the engine that drives technological progress and the growth of the entire national economy. And private equity is a sustainable fuel for this engine.

Frank Hüther

Spokesman of the BVK Board, Managing Director Abacus alpha
