HPE Growth

Our investment strategy

Most importantly, we invest in people

We seek for outstanding management teams with growth ambition and execution focus in companies that have developed leading scaleable technology, have succeeded to bring the technology to market and want to accelerate the growth. We know the path to success is bumpy and are in it for the long run.

We have over EUR 500 million in committed capital across two funds and co-investment vehicles. We focus on scaling digital technology companies from EUR 10 to 100 million turnover. We aim to deploy EUR 10-45 million equity per company in return for a minority or majority stake.

We care

Our intention is to use our position as a technology investor to do good. We believe in the power of technology to be a big part of the solution for current environmental and social problems

Our ESG Principles

  • Do no harm
  • Implement and adhere to good governance
  • Promote diversity
  • Ensure appropriate data protection for all stakeholders


HPE Growth aims to support the UN SDGs through technology where possible. It mainly focusses on:

  • Decent Work and Economic Growth (SDG 8)               
  • Industry Innovation and Infrastructure (SDG 9)          


To emphasize the importance it places in ESG, HPE has committed itself to be a signatory to the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), implemented by the United Nations in 2009.

Adherence to these principles should not only lead to better long-term financial returns for our investors but also a closer alignment between the objectives of institutional investors and society at large.


Transparency & SFDR

We aim to inform our stakeholders on a regular basis on how ESG matters are developing in our portfolio companies and within our own organization.  This includes the yearly issuance of our impact report, which is shared with our investors and can be requested here.
