GSC – Rigeto

Entrepreneurial Capital

From Entrepreneurs
For Entrepreneurs


GSC-Rigeto is a partnership between Green Sentinel Capital and Rigeto Unternehmerkapital, backed by distinguished German and Italian industrial capital.

Through partnering with family-operated, mid-cap companies in Italy, GSC-Rigeto helps family entrepreneurs to reach the next growth stage while maintaining the legacy of the company. GSC-Rigeto intends to partner with 5 companies during 2024 – 2025.

Investment philosophy

GSC-Rigeto stems from family-run businesses and is operated by family entrepreneurs. It is therefore driven with the passion and spirit of developing and preserving medium-sized businesses in sectors with growth potential.

GSC-Rigeto is backed by real entrepreneurial capital and has no fund structure which allows for a tailored, flexible investment approach without a specific sector focus. This approach enables GSC-Rigeto to build sustainable long-term value and to maintain the legacy of the family businesses GSC-Rigeto partners with.
