Change Capital Partners is a specialist private equity firm founded in 2003 by Luc Vandevelde. We focus on consumer related businesses where our capital and deep operational expertise can help founders and managers realise their ambitions for growth. So far we have invested close to €400m. Our operational expertise comes from running major blue chip businesses in the sector and in applying that experience in a wide range of private equity investments.
“During the time of our partnership, Change, through supporting me and the management team gave strategic insight and backed ideas with investment and confidence”
CEO, Hillarys Blinds
Change Capital Partners focuses on opportunities across Europe and has a deliberately international team; a team that ‘grew up’ amongst the brands and retailers we invest in, with proven ability to execute transactions and work with teams in multiple countries.
“We wanted a partner that could help us grow internationally and Change Capital Partners are really delivering – their experience, network and support is helping create a tailored proposition to match consumer needs in different markets whilst retaining our core DNA”
