Norvestor partners with glueckkanja, a leading provider of Microsoft public cloud and cybersecurity managed services


Norvestor IX SCSp (“Norvestor IX”), has signed and closed an agreement with PRIMEPULSE SE to acquire the majority stake of glueckkanja AG (“glueckkanja” or “the Company”), a leading Cloud Managed Service Provider in the Microsoft ecosystem. The Company’s unique combination of standardized cloud managed services (Managed Workplace, Managed Azure), its own Cloud Security Operations Center (Managed Security) and its own technologies and SaaS solutions (Companion products) makes glueckkanja one of the leading Microsoft Public Cloud Partners in Europe.

The Company has been recognized multiple times as a Microsoft Worldwide Partner of the Year, most recently in 2024 and holds the Microsoft Verified Managed Extended Detection and Response (MXDR) certification. Headquartered in Offenbach, Germany, with 180 talented employees, glueckkanja has been growing rapidly supporting its customers throughout the DACH region. Looking ahead, the Company plans to expand its presence into the Nordics and further European markets, through organic growth and strategic acquisitions. In 2023, glueckkanja generated close to EUR 30 million in sales with industry leading profitability margins.

"On behalf of glueckkanja, I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to our dedicated employees whose hard work and commitment have been instrumental in our success. We are excited to join forces with Norvestor and look forward to leveraging their expertise in successfully developing IT services business models to accelerate our growth and expand our presence in new geographies", says Christian Kanja, Founder and CEO of glueckkanja.

"Norvestor has a long and successful history of investing in IT services companies and has been searching for a pure-play public cloud player targeting the highest growing market segments. We are extremely impressed by what the glueckkanja team has built and very enthusiastic about the opportunity to partner with such an innovative and entrepreneurial business. With its exceptional talent base and unique set of services, the Company is ideally positioned to address the strong expected growth in public cloud and cybersecurity markets and to expand to new geographies, including the Nordics where Norvestor has a particularly strong presence in the IT services industry”, says Fredrik Gyllenhammar Raaum, Partner at Norvestor Advisory.

Following the acquisition, Norvestor became the largest shareholder in glueckkanja, alongside the Company’s management and key employees.
