10 years later we became C2 Capital Partners.
Our name may be different, but our commitment
remains unchanged: equity partners of Portuguese companies.

C2 Capital Partners is a privately held
and independent private equity firm that operates
in the Portuguese market since 2009.

With a broad experience across several industries,
our teams successfully conducted several investments
and divestments, both in Portugal and abroad.
