Carl Finance launches matching platform for investors and medium-sized companies
Private equity investors are looking for takeover opportunities, many medium-sized companies are urgently looking for a successor. The new platform Carl Connect aims to bring the two sides together.
Many SME entrepreneurs are desperately looking for a successor to take over their company. The Berlin fintech Carl Finance now wants to help these managers: Through its new platform Carl Connect, it wants to bring companies and investors together to prevent succession crises.
On Carl Connect, investors can register for free and specify in which industries, region and size they are looking for takeover candidates. "Carl gives us access to suitable companies in an opaque market," said Christoph Bänziger, managing director of investor WKM Mittelstand, at the launch. Some well-known investors are already active on the platform, including Deutsche Industrie Holding, Deutsche Private Equity, Auctus and EOS.
The offering is about more than just investment opportunities, explains Carl Finance CEO Kurosch Habibi: "With the impending demise of hundreds of thousands of German Mittelstand companies, it's not just jobs that are being lost, but also innovation and value creation in Germany."
