Gimv is convinced of the importance of a dynamic healthcare sector, fully focused on qualitative, accessible and affordable care. Moreover, good patient care, whether preventative, curative or rehabilitative, is impossible without also considering the people who provide it, by freeing them up from non-care tasks as much as possible, and by continuing to embrace innovation, digitization and automation.

Therefore, we also focus on the one hand on supporting innovative service providers to the broader healthcare ecosystem and on the other hand on companies that bring (new) healthcare products to the market that make a real difference for the patients, the healthcare staff, the care providers, but also for the healthcare system and broader society.

As a socially responsible investor with decades of experience, Gimv firmly believes that private equity can help solve the many problems currently being faced in healthcare. Gimv has successfully applied innovation, out-of-the-box thinking and change management in several Healthcare growth stories, amongst others through a constructive dialogue with all stakeholders.

The Gimv Healthcare team has the expertise, experience and network to help. In short, all the ingredients to build leading Healthcare companies.
