Owners Capital

Mission and vision

Michel Gschwendtner

Michel Gschwendtner

Owners Capital was founded in 2013 by the passionate entrepreneur, innovator and advisor Michel Gschwendtner. His more than 25 years of international experience in project management, joint ventures, patents and M&A transactions motivated the visionary strategist to take this step in order to use his expertise, profound knowledge and valuable network in a targeted manner. With full commitment and heart and soul.

At the heart of everything we do is the will to change things for the better, the trust between us and our partners and the sense of shared responsibility. The basis for this is the motivation of our accomplished teams of experts to find optimal solutions. Personal, future-oriented and sustainable.

At Owners Capital, we like to feel like one big family among ourselves. It is not only the work that counts, private matters are also very close to our hearts. We regard the trust placed in us as a great honour, not as a matter of course. In this way, we deal with our partners and their problems in an extremely respectful and attentive manner. We are committed to them and strive to achieve the best results.

Our investment mission is to increase company values in harmony and care on the basis of innovation, market and finance. In this regard, we have a reputable track record of completed transactions in excess of $1 billion, which underlines the quality of our actions.

Having a vision is the art
of seeing things that are invisible to others

Thinking differently to make good things even better

How can we help where?

In the spirit of progressive perspectives and in order to support and build up local structures, the Owners Capital Group is continuously expanding its fields of activity and locations. Currently: Germany, UK, USA, China, Hong Kong, India and Zambia. We see it as our task to actively tackle the challenges of the 21st century. In doing so, one question is increasingly coming into focus: How can we help where? 

We focus on innovative solutions to global problems on the ground together with local partners. Our focus is on health, energy and sustainability. Here, Owners Capital uses its connections to help countries and governments solve their problems and connect them with each other.

Thanks to our international supply chains, we are not only solving the short-term challenges posed by the pandemic, but also seeking further opportunities with our partners to build a long-term beneficial relationship for decades to come.

China is a reliable partner in the health sector. The country has been very supportive during the pandemic in procuring and supplying PPE, vaccines and other equipment in the medical field.

Since 2006, we have been implementing projects in Africa with the help of our local partners. In June 2021, we founded the company BootUP Africa in Zambia as our new hub in order to provide more intensive support to African countries that are currently suffering particularly badly from the pandemic and to be able to be sustainably active on the ground.

We create opportunities and guarantee that our partners also achieve their goals. Always.


We attach great importance to the development of technological inventions and the promotion of intellectual property. Therefore, our focus is not only on filing a patent, but also on potential future investments with the aim of long-term cooperation.
