Hubert Deitmers and Martijn Hamann are now the two sole owners of investment company Endeit Capital, with 75% and 25% of the shares respectively. Co-founder of Endeit Capital, Joop van den Ende has sold his fifty percent stake to Deitmers and Hamann after a partnership of fifteen years.
Joop van den Ende has from the beginning been closely involved in the set up and management of Endeit Capital. Van den Ende: “At this stage of my life, I am happy to transfer my share of responsibilities to my partners. Next to that, I would like to continue to co-invest. In this respect co-ownership is not ideal from a governance perspective. Since 2006 I have enjoyed working with my former Endemol colleagues Hubert and Martijn on the growth of European tech scale-ups. I am extremely proud of what we have been able to achieve for our portfolio companies.”
Endeit is the leading investor in tech scale-ups in the Netherlands and the DACH countries. We have helped more than 30 companies with their further growth, with many successful exits. Van den Ende: “It is great to see that many entrepreneurs in whom we have invested are now investing in our funds themselves. Endeit is very active, with great new projects on the horizon and I am happy to remain involved in them as an investor. The period in which we worked together was wonderful, however now it is time for other things.”
Managing Partner and co-founder Hubert Deitmers: “Joop’s wisdom, style, insights, knowledge and personality were indispensable in getting Endeit Capital initially off the ground and in shaping it in a way that sets us apart from other investment companies. Joop is the personification of what we call our We Care philosophy: a focus on the business as well as the people within our portfolio companies and on doing business fairly. We are enormously indebted to Joop and it is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to him as co-owner of our company. However, we are delighted that he remains involved as an investor. There are some great, new developments ahead of us and we are taking these on with great energy and enthusiasm.”
From the home markets of the Netherlands and Germany, Endeit Capital specializes in investing in tech scale-ups that have outgrown the start-up phase. Endeit helps these companies with capital and management guidance to reach maturity. In doing so, Endeit’s partners draw on their broad experience in expanding and internationalizing operations through buy & build, as the founders have successfully done at Endemol. Responsible investing is paramount here: no financial engineering in the portfolio companies, and a lot of attention to the social aspects of managing a business. Endeit is a co-signer of the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment. Endeit has invested over €250 million in 35 companies and currently has 11 companies in 7 countries in its portfolio.
