Karmijn Kapitaal was founded by Désirée van Boxtel, Hadewych Cels en Cilian Jansen Verplanke. We share our enthusiasm for entrepreneurs and our extensive background in investing and entrepreneurship. In 2010 we saw the opportunity for an investment fund that focusses on companies managed by both women and men.
Karmijn is a signatory to the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (“PRI”) Initiative. PRI is an international network of investors working together to put a number of principles for responsible investment into practice.
