HeidelbergCapital is an independent, private equity funds group, specializing in secondary direct investments, e.g. the acquisition of shareholdings in companies previously held by private equity/venture capital funds or banks.

HeidelbergCapital was founded in mid 2007 by Prof. Dr. Martin Weiblen, former Managing Director of a multi-billion pound family office in London, UK and an advisor to several life science funds. The company is jointly managed with Dr. Clemens Doppler, former partner at 3i, a British private equity group. The New York-based private equity investor Auda has committed a total of 150 million US dollars for the first fund, HeidelbergCapital Private Equity Fund I.

The portfolio of HeidelbergCapital ranges from investments in later stage venture companies with a proven business model to established mid-sized operations. As an active partner, HeidelbergCapital supports the companies in strategic business decisions, but also provides, where appropriate, funding for further growth.
