Founded in 2014 by four senior entrepreneur-investors, Careventures is a leading healthcare-focused European private equity firm.

The Careventures way

As former healthcare entrepreneurs and investors with more than 15 years of experience working together, we deeply understand the strategic and operational issues faced by entrepreneurs, business owners and management teams in developing their projects.

Our pan-European vision, combined with a devoted hands-on and responsible approach, are what define us.

We love challenges and are committed to improving European healthcare quality by supporting innovative ideas and models.

What we do

Careventures looks to build and grow successful business platforms in unconsolidated healthcare niches through a combination of organic and external growth.

Executing multiple follow-on acquisitions in diverse geographies, accurately addressing and exploiting technological shifts and/or changes in regulatory environments, and properly managing clinical talent are common themes in the projects we are involved.

We provide resources, advice and our network’s expertise to contribute towards the development of high potential projects that combine good profits with good purpose.

We want to be the partner of choice for those entrepreneurs and management teams that want more than a financial partner.
