Created in 2004, CERES INDUSTRIES CAPITAL is an evergreen investment holding managed by entrepreneurs and former CEOs of SMEs. So far, our team has invested in more than 30 companies in 8 countries.

We aim at investing c. €500 million in the next 5 years.


Based on experience as CEOs of operating companies, Ceres’ has developed a differentiated Private Equity investment approach:


  • PATIENT CAPITAL thanks to our evergreen holding thereby avoiding to put undue timing constraints onto our management teams

  • OPERATIONAL VALUE-ADDED APPROACH: Ceres team is comprised of former CEOs with sector specific management experience and international networks as we believe that nothing replaces operational experience in contributing to the growth of companies

  • RESPONSIBLE INVESTMENT APPROACH, by which we encourage our companies to adhere to the highest standards of business conduct and to have a positive impact on the communities they serve. Indeed, we believe that aligning the interests of our companies with those of society at large can enhance value creation for all stakeholders.


Thanks to this differentiated approach, CERES aims at helping management teams build great companies.
