About CNBB Equity Partners

Who we are

CNBB Equity Partners is a Rotterdam-based investment firm founded in 2007 by Arco van Nieuwland 
(co-founder of Exact) and Lucas Brentjens (former CEO of Exact). We are an investment fund with a 
focus on private equity investments in the Benelux and DACH on the back of legacy venture capital 
investments. Our investment expertise is centered around mature B2B SaaS companies with proven 
business models reflected in bottom-line profitability and strong growth potential. Herein, we support 
our partner companies in unlocking value through organic growth, operational optimization and buy & 
build. We work with a small but experienced team of 7 professionals and intend to expand 
our team within the coming years.

What we do

As a strategic investor, our aim is to not only contribute with capital but also leverage our 30+ years of 
experience in the B2B SaaS industry to build great software companies. This starts by selecting well-
positioned companies with best-in-class software products and related services, a strong customer
base, and attractive market dynamics. We are an active and pragmatic partner to management teams 
and support them in strategic discussions and buy & build. By balancing our focus on product 
development, operational efficiencies and a selective consolidation approach, we transform sub-scale 
software companies into mid-market champions.
