Business Area

YCP Group provides capital in various forms to start-ups and SMEs that lack the necessary capital or human resources to realize their growth strategies. We invest into a variety of companies, ranging from well-established firms to new start-ups, regardless of the company’s growth phase.

Most private equity funds and investment firms tend to avoid investing into start-ups and SMEs because the return on investment (ROI) is too small and there are high business risks associated with succession. However, as YCP invests from our own balance sheet and sends in our own management team for support, we are able to provide unique solutions to realize growth even after investment. By investing with our own capital, we are not pressured by external investors to liquidate our portfolio companies within a certain time frame. This allows us to implement actions to realize long-term and sustainable growth of our portfolio companies.
