Since 1989, Gerald Glasauer has successfully worked in the banking and equity market. Born in 1969 in Schwäbisch Hall, he founded the first public venture capital fund in 1994 under the corporate name of GUB Glasauer Unternehmensbeteiligungen KG.

Over 110 shares in up-and-coming high-tech start-ups were co-financed with GUB’s involvement. Companies from this portfolio received innovation awards, and one of the technology founders received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. From the GUB shares, seven companies were successfully launched on the stock markets in Germany and the USA. Particularly successful was a start-up company which received founding financing in 2000 by GUB, and which today is listed on the American stock market with a market capitalisation of over 5 billion euros.

In 2017, Gerald Glasauer and his GUB Investment Trust acquired a majority share in Aifotec AG, and assumed chairmanship of the Supervisory Board in 2018.
Quote: “The reason for the acquisition was Aifotec’s outstanding position as one of the leading development and manufacturing specialists in the rapidly evolving optical photonics market.”
