Public and private sector relationship

VMH’s equity capital is controlled by the Flemish Region. Their mandate is defined in a collaboration agreement. VMH acts autonomously within this framework and provides half-yearly accountability to the competent minister.

In addition to strategic participations, VMH also provides venture capital to companies that are accelerating the transition to a circular economy.

VMH differs from traditional VCs by virtue of their extended time horizon and entry into companies in an early phase of development.

VMH exclusively invests in entrepreneurs, companies and other financiers in the form of a minority share in the venture capital round.
