Investing in the future

BurdaPrincipal Investments supports fast-growing digital companies in the technology and media industry with long-term growth capital. Having invested in internet companies since 1998, Hubert Burda Media can look back on many years of success. Burda has used its own capital, market knowledge and brand expertise to partner and support forward-looking companies with business development, internationalisation and localisation.

Our investments are therefore aimed at long-term growth and capital gains. Freed from the restrictions of a fund structure and holding periods, we support companies in various phases of growth.

Our investment portfolio comprises successful consumer internet companies in Europe, the USA and Asia. Example investments include SkillshareVinted, Bloom & Wild, Notonthehighstreet and The Female Company.
