Who we are –


BonVenture is the first investment company in the German-speaking countries that focuses on the social impact of its portfolio companies: Since 2003, we have offered investors the possibility to provide social venture capital to social enterprises through our fund. As a partner to social enterprises, we strengthen you with capital, expertise and contacts and promote the development and spread of social innovations.

The team of BonVenture Management GmbH only receives a financial profit from the managed fund when the determined social effects are achieved. A portion of the profits is donated to the BonVenture gGmbH (charity), making BonVenture a social enterprise itself.

What unites us is our passion for entrepreneurial vision and the desire to tackle the challenges of our time.

Network &


Our network, which has grown over many years, opens doors and brings together investors, entrepreneurs and the non-profit sector. With our partners, we regularly exchange views on new developments in the social sector and promote the discussion on issues such as the measurement of social impact. For example, together with Ashoka, Auridis, the Schwab Foundation, the TU Munich, the University of Hamburg and PriceWaterhouseCoopers, we developed the SOCIAL REPORTING STANDARD (SRS).
