We are convinced that active entrepreneurship must and can make a positive contribution to the preservation of our planet.
Through our investment decisions, we influence companies – and how they develop. That’s why we deliberately seek out impact entrepreneurs who not only have a good business idea and want to develop it further, but who also want to make an active contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). Together, we define concrete impact goals and align, for example, the compensation structure and incentive systems with financial indicators and the improvement of impact KPIs.
We are convinced that impact entrepreneurship is an attitude that is necessary for our future, and one that we can and want to use to get a little better every day.
We are convinced that impact entrepreneurship and impact investing are the logical and consistent continuation of the German family business tradition and that we do not have to make any compromises in terms of expected returns. On the contrary, we can achieve improvements on the risk side for the entire portfolio.
Do you want to share your entrepreneurial ideas and ambitions with us?
Companies that offer solutions to the major economic and social challenges of our time, such as climate change or a growing and aging population, can remain successful and be part of the smart future. These challenges and trends therefore form the basis of our investment approach.
Our goal is to have a positive impact on society and to reduce negative societal impacts with each investment – both through the business activities of the portfolio companies and by implementing initiatives to improve ESG performance. ESG standards are a minimum requirement in this regard. In addition, we pay attention to a traceable impact, which is transparently presented and managed via KPIs.
The United Nations has adopted 17 global goals for 2030, which world leaders have committed to achieving. Achieving these goals will require an unprecedented effort from all sectors of society – and business has a very important role to play. PRIMEPULSE supports the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations. Together with our portfolio companies, we aim to contribute to a number of them.

Do you have any questions on our impact approach?
With impact investing, the initially seemingly contradictory goals of sustainability, profitability and growth can be united. The impact idea thus offers a fresh, inclusive approach to realigning existing forms of business and creating innovative value chains.
