Burda Principal Investments (BPI) is a division of Hubert Burda Media which provides long term growth equity for fast growing digital technology and media companies. Hubert Burda Media is one of Europe’s largest media and technology conglomerates with a strong investment track record in internet-centric businesses, since 1998.
We have been partners of visionary entrepreneurs, leveraging Burda’s capital, brands and sector expertise, particularly in the areas of business expansion, internationalization and localization.
We are invested in a portfolio of highly successful consumer internet companies in Europe, the U.S. and Asia. In the past, Hubert Burda Media has invested in internet platforms such as Etsy, zooplus, HolidayCheck, or Xing AG.
BPI is run by a dedicated team of investment professionals based in Munich, Berlin, London and Singapore. We proud ourselves on the level of integrity, transparency & trust we maintain around our decision-making process and in our company culture. These values are the cornerstones of our commitments as we grow and support an eco-system of sustainable digital consumer start-ups in our investments portfolio. These values also underpin the way we interact with each other & conduct ourselves externally. We are a diverse & global team and make a conscious effort to continually align ourselves to these values and refine our approach to best address changing landscapes and markets.
Though the turn in the decade has brought with it increasing challenges across the globe, it has also presented greater opportunities for a new generation of businesses to create value and pave the way for a sustainable future. At BPI we see our responsibility, in line with our values of integrity, transparency and inclusion to address the impact we create internally and through support of our portfolio companies.
Our goal is to identify this impact and seek to not only enhance any positive outcomes but also to eliminate negative consequences of our activities. We choose a holistic approach in our commitment to bring digital innovation and sustainability together as we support the next generation of leaders in their mission to build a better world, while building economic growth, together.
