Founded in March 2011, GMPVC German Media Pool is Germany’s first media for equity advertising fund combining different media types. GMPVC provides entrepreneurs with the ability to achieve breakthrough cross-media campaigns while conserving cash to finance their growth. GMPVC is partner of the media groups N24, REGIOCAST and WallDecaux. Pooled media consisting of TV, radio and out-of-home advertising is exchanged for an equity stake in high-growth businesses.
German Media Pool is driven by a passion for entrepreneurship. We believe that strong entrepreneurial companies can emerge out of Europe.
We believe that entrepreneurs require a strong and professional support ecosystem to grow rapidly. This can include best-of-breed specialists such as lawyers, technology partners, angel investors, venture capitalists, cutting-edge research universities and yes, media specialists.
