Colo­gne, May 2024 — Armira Growth has raised €200 million for its first growth fund with a final closing volume at hard cap of €200 million. In addi­tion to entre­pre­neurs and entre­pre­neu­rial fami­lies from Armira’s special inves­tor base, public inves­tors also parti­ci­pa­ted in the closing. With its fund, Armira Growth will prima­rily invest in Euro­pean compa­nies from the growth sector, with a focus on the DACH region.

Armira Growth invests in fast-growing compa­nies in Europe that are driving tech­no­lo­gi­cal change and chal­len­ging tradi­tio­nal value chains with inno­va­tive solu­ti­ons. Armira Growth accom­pa­nies leading tech­no­logy compa­nies through growth invest­ments as a long-term and trust­wor­thy part­ner. — The selec­tive invest­ment stra­tegy focu­ses on a limi­ted number of selec­ted compa­nies and provi­des funds of between EUR 10 and 50 million each, ther­eby promo­ting a mino­rity part­ner­ship approach.

YPOG provi­ded Armira Growth with compre­hen­sive legal and tax advice on the struc­tu­ring and fund­rai­sing of its first growth fund with a final closing volume at the hard cap of €200 million.
