Growth capital for mature European software technology companies

fronttrail is a specialized expansion (Expansionsphase) and late stage (Spätphase) investor focusing exclusively on European software companies. We partner with extraordinary founders, entrepreneurs and management teams to rapidly transform their businesses into sustainable leaders and winners in their field.

fronttrail invests equity (Beteiligungskapital) into established players and early movers in software and software-enabled businesses that are either already rapidly growing or in a transformation process. Targets own a proven and proprietary software technology that addresses a clear business need in large horizontal or vertical markets, have a scalable business model, are run by strong management teams and are about to reach an inflection point in their value creation.

As a growth capital (Wachstumskapital) investor, unlocking potential and realizing growth opportunities is at the center point of our activities. With our deep domain expertise, we actively support the growth, acquisition and transformation plans of our management teams to help them to achieve their operative, financial and strategic goals.

Investors (Kapitalgeber) behind fronttrail are well-known institutionals, family offices and high net worth individuals. Our international investor base is fully committed to our asset class with a corresponding long-term investment horizon to realize the maximum potential of every single transaction.

The company was founded by Urs Ehrismann, Managing Director, a senior software growth capital investor, former founder of ViewPoint Capital Partners in Frankfurt/Zurich and investment banker with Vontobel in Zurich.
