Marketing medicinal products that facilitate the therapeutic relationship between care providers and patients has been the mission of Mike van Woensel since 2001 when he established Eurocept Pharmaceuticals.
Since 2013, the investment company Gimv originally listed on the Belgian stock exchange has been a partner of the Eurocept Group. At the time, Gimv, through its Health & Care Fund, acquired a minority holding along with founder/CEO Mike van Woensel. Until 2017 the group comprised homecare, private clinics and a pharmaceutical company. Since 2017 the company has been legally split. At that time Eurocept Pharmaceuticals Holding shed homecare and clinics. In 2020 named shareholders announced they had reached agreement with Mediq for the undertaken sale of shares of the homecare business and the private clinics. This share transaction is subject to approval by NZA and ACM. The cooperation between Gimv and Eurocept Pharmaceuticals is being used to further strengthen Eurocept’s position and to roll out the business model to neighboring countries.
Gimv is a European investment company, listed on Euronext Brussels. With 40 years’ experience in private equity, Gimv currently has EUR 2 billion of assets under management.
