The French Ventech S.A. has, together with Alto Invest, acquired shares in Speexx (www.speexx.de). Speexx is one of the most important providers of professional and innovative language learning solutions.

The award-winning cloud-based Speex solution is, among others, available in English, Spanish, German, Italian and French. Speexx has been honored with industry recognition and more than 200 international awards (e.g. winner of Business English test carried out by Stiftung Warentest in 2010). The company was founded in 1994 and is headquartered in Munich with subsidiaries London, Madrid, Milan, Paris, Sao Paulo, Shanghai and Singapore (see more under http://www.gruenderszene.de/allgemein/speexx-ventech-alto-invest). Ventech, already existing since 1998, provides further equity to help Speex’ international expansion. Ventech has a focus on European companies active in the digital economy. Companies financed by Ventech represent a turnover of approx. EUR 360 million per year. Ventech has mandated BMH BRÄUTIGAM once again. With this mandate, BMH BRÄUTIGAM has strengthened its position with foreign VC investors focussing on innovative German companies. “Advising VC investors has become more and more im-portant for us, beside the traditional Private Equity business. We intend to grow further in this area, especially since Berlin has become the Venture Capital metropolis in Germany”, Dr. Sylko Winkler says.
