About Berk Partners

A team for 30 years, together with entrepreneurs

Berk Partners supports entrepreneurs in accelerating growth and generating business value from companies.

We have been investing for 30 years in successful, well-run, (family) companies with headquarters in the Netherlands, with a turnover of € 5- € 75 million and who are active, preferably, in the food and manufacturing industry or as a supplier to healthcare.

Berk Partners is independent and strives for active support of entrepreneurs and management teams to realize their (international) growth ambitions at an accelerated pace. Berk Partners has invested in more than 40 companies over the years.

Berk Partners’ experienced and entrepreneurial investment team assists portfolio companies in financial, strategic and operational areas. In close consultation with a company’s management a strategic direction is determined and Berk Partners helps to implement this if desired.

Sustainability is a top priority at Berk Partners, which is why we have signed the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (UN-PRI) and we act in accordance with these six principles.

Berk Partners underlines the importance of supporting a strong investment market. Therefore, we are a member of the Nederlandse Vereniging van Participatiemaatschappijen (NVP).

Berk Partners is registered with the Dutch regulator, the Dutch Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM).


Berk Partners believes it has the task to make a positive contribution to the environment, the community and its stakeholders. Not only from the perspective of social responsibility, but also from the conviction that in this way the most value can be created for its investments and shareholders. Both before and after an investment, corporate policy in the field of the environment, society and corporate governance (environmental, social and governance: ESG) plays an important role. Read our Responsible Investment Policy here, which sets out what is expected from Berk Partners as an investor and what Berk Partners expects from its portfolio companies.

Investment strategy and criteria

How we work

Berk Partners invests in small and medium-sized companies with long-term growth potential.

Berk Partners is constantly looking for companies that are well positioned in (niche) markets, industries and sectors with a long-term growth potential. Themes with special attention are: aging, trends in nutrition and innovation.

A strategic growth plan is drawn up for each investment in close consultation with the company’s management, which forms the basis for further long-term cooperation. We see strong and participatory management as crucial for the success of a joint investment. Berk Partners inspires, stimulates and supports management.

Berk Partners invests in majorities and minorities (under specific conditions). In addition, we mainly facilitate growth capital, buy-outs and pre-exits and we support, among other things, improvements within the organization, acquisitions and buy-and-build strategies.

Prior to an investment, it is jointly identified what opportunities there are to create value. The aim is for the company to become larger and stronger after the investment period (3-6 years) due to sustainable growth. Together with the entrepreneur or the management team, a new owner is then sought to continue the deployed growth.

Berk Partners applies the following strict investment criteria and situations.
