In December 2008, Gimv set up the Gimv-XL co-investment program together with Vlaamse Participatiemaatschappij (VPM).
Gimv-XL allows Gimv to meet the capital needs of Flanders’ larger growth companies. Such companies have an enterprise value of up to EUR 750 million, a sound business model and the potential to expand from the Flemish market into the international market. With the support of Gimv-XL, some 7 Flemish companies have been able to achieve strong growth.
On 31 March 2016, Gimv-XL's investment period expired, allowing only follow-on investments in existing shareholdings during the remainder of the co-investment programme.
