Private Equity Internship

About Legia Capital

Legia Capital is a private investment company that participates in small and medium-sized companies
with an industrial profile that are in a phase of consolidation, internationalization and/or developing new
markets. Our objective is to enable entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial managers to write a growth story
and create value. We invest from a strategic perspective, without a prior exit strategy and the
accompanying pressure to pursue a quick sale. We differentiate ourselves from other private equity firms
through our hands-on approach where we aim to support our investments on a weekly basis and assist
them with strategic, financial and growth projects. We invest in companies with a B2B footprint and an
EBITDA between €1.5m and €6m. Currently we are involved in 8 portfolio companies in Belgium as well
as the Netherlands.

Legia Capital consists of a young team of three people with diverse backgrounds ranging from corporate
finance and private equity to strategy consulting. Our offices are located in Ghent, nearby the highway
and accessible by public transport.
