Who we are

We are an established investment firm, with an experienced team of professionals. We leverage our entrepreneurial mindset to help portfolio companies in their growth.

About us

For the last 30 years, we have provided companies with the tools and expertise they need to help them reach their full potential and pursue long term expansion.

We trace our roots back to the enlightened vision of Alessandro Benetton, embodying a commitment to social consciousness, innovation, and continuous improvement that permeates every aspect of our work.

Founded in 1992, 21 Invest was a pioneer in the Italian mid-market.
We continued evolving with the establishment of a local team in France in 1998, then in Poland in 2013.

Today we are a European group, with a strong local presence to scout investment opportunities and support portfolio companies growth, along with a global coordination on industry knowledge, investor relations, sustainability and communications.
