European Capital Partners: Technology and media investment
Making European Media and Technology Investments
European Capital Partners

A Partnership of European Entrepreneurs

Based in London, Paris, and Madrid, the partners own online media and technology companies. The partnership pools capital, know-how and a network of contacts. We have sales forces in three countries, and a strong technical development capability in Spain. We pool several hundred staff, hundreds of server racks, and substantial telecom and data-center facilities.

Mid-way between an angel investment club and corporate investment vehicle, we invest in, acquire or partner with online media and technology companies. Our aim is to exploit fully our existing portfolio of projects. Typically we joint venture by providing our technology to sales partners, or, taking technology to sell through our sales teams.

Our biggest investment has been 8 million, our smallest 30,000. We are interested in early stage investments in online service and technology niches with global potential.

Several of the partners have been members of IPO teams, and have extensive experience in managing the transition from small private to large public company. But we concentrate mostly on company creation rather than administration. We are specially interested in opportunities with local players in continental Europe and expanding reach of the company world-wide.

Some of our investments are
