About Convent Capital

Convent Capital is an independent Dutch investment company established in 2011. With our first fund we focus on small to medium sized companies within the Benelux that have a good track record and where we see strategic and operational opportunities to create sustainable value: organically, in new markets or via a buy-&-build strategy. With our new fund we focus on providing growth capital to innovative and sustainable companies in the agri & food markets and thereby making a positive impact.

Convent Capital has a strong focus on sustainability and believes in the transition from the current linear economy to a circular economy. Convent’s ambition is to prove that companies that focus on this will ultimately be the winners of the future. We are convinced that this will create higher returns for all our stakeholders in the long term. Our focus is therefore on the long term.

We do this with a team of ambitious specialists in cooperation with the management teams of our portfolio companies, supported by our investors who are all entrepreneurs of good repute and form a solid basis from which we can invest.
