Den Bosch, 12 June 2023 – ESquare Capital Partners, the entrepreneurial technology investment firm successfully raised their second funding round for their Software & IT Investment platform

ESquare Capital Partners, the emerging entrepreneurial technology investment firm, is proud to announce the successful close of its second funding round for the ESquare Software & IT Investment Platform. On the backset of geopolitical turmoil, challenging conditions in capital markets and negative sentiment with traditional investors after the demise of several leading global banks, ESquare Capital Partners has raised a significant investment round to further strengthen its position as an emerging Benelux private equity investor targeting the lower end of the mid-market.

In this latest funding round ESquare Capital Partners managed to secure substantial backing from a group of entrepreneurial investors from various backgrounds who recognise the sustainable growth potential of the Software & IT sector. This achievement is a testament to ESquare Capital Partners’ expertise in identifying promising technology companies and the attractive investment opportunity and unique profile of ESquare compared to other traditional private equity and other investment asset classes.

This achievement showcases the confidence and trust placed in ESquare Capital Partners by our entrepreneurial investors,” said Bob Rottinghuis, Managing Partner at ESquare Capital Partners. “The funds raised will enable us to continue our mission of supporting robust, innovative and scalable Software & IT companies, providing them with the necessary capital and resources to accelerate their growth ambitions.”
