About DBH Investment
DBH was founded in 1994 by Hungarian and Dutch local governments and development agencies in Maastricht. It was the first Hungarian company of regional interest that worked in the field of economic and business development and was established to operate outside Hungarian borders. The organization called Development Bridge Head (DBH) supported the Hungarian investments of Dutch firms with guidance and services. The DBH Group’s headquarter was established in Budapest in 2005 thus strengthening its advisory and investment activity in Central and Eastern Europe.
In 2008 based on its experience gained in the European financial and investment markets, DBH Group formed its own venture capital fund and established the DBH Investment Venture Capital Fund Management Public Limited Company (Plc.). DBH Investment Venture Capital Fund Management Plc. successfully took part in the competition of the New Hungary Venture Capital Program (JEREMIE program) tendered by the European Commission and as a result, its fund grew to 5 billion HUF (approx. EUR 17mn) in 2009.
