WESSEL MANAGEMENT GMBH

Wessel Management GmbH is the vehicle for venture capital and other investments made by the family of Rolf Christof Dienst.

For 40 years, we have been investing directly (and through Rolf, founding partner of Wellington Partners, also indirectly) with entrepreneurs, who show the greatest potential to achieve success for interesting ideas and/or technologies.

We particularly like to engage with companies, which contribute to the wellbeing and prosperity of society in general. We mostly invest in conjunction with a small group of co-investors – all experienced entrepreneurs themselves with specific industry knowledge and wide-ranging personal networks. Together with these partners, we support our portfolio companies actively.

Our own investments typically range from 1% to 25% of a portfolio company’s share capital. We often engage at a very early stage, sometimes when the entrepreneurs are still at university. While we love accompanying entrepreneurs on their journey to commercial success, human interactions and ethical aspects define our partnerships equally.

We truly believe that positive thinking and acting leads to positive results. 

With our team of six, we currently manage a portfolio of 35 investments. In 2017, we made six new investments and successfully executed four exits.

Geographically, our investments are focused in Europe. The largest number are in the regions of Munich, Berlin and Cologne.

A separate subsidiary, Paarl Grundbesitz GmbH, manages in excess of EUR100m of real estate investments.
