Investing in Exceptional Teams in the Baltics & Scandinavia

Where and how we invest

Startups – Equity and Lead Investing for Technical Startups with Traction

With our Seed Fund we invest in scalable technology-driven startups that can demonstrate initial traction in their seed stage. We like our companies to be based in the Baltics or Scandinavia.

We prefer rounds that give 18 months of runway with a goal of reaching series A after that. Our initial ticket size varies from EUR 50K-200K.

We are active investors often participating as supervisory board members or advisors to the team. When we lead the investment, we help with finding co-investors and putting together the document stack.

Proven businesses – Small Cap Private Equity investments to support growth

Our Growth Fund is designed for small and medium-sized businesses with a proven track and strong market position. We prefer companies with a growth story that can be realised with our participation. Our strategy is to acquire a minority shareholding in exchange for EUR 300K-700K investment.

We provide capital to realise a market or an M&A opportunity and could provide partial exit possibility to the shareholders. Our preference would be to help entrepreneurs gain access to bank financing by offering the equity component of such ventures. In addition to capital you will gain access to our team as an experienced partner to help figure out strategies for maximising value of the enterprise.

Long-Term Synergy Between Your and Our Team

Most importantly, we invest in smart people. Our preference is with teams of execution mindset and founders driven by facts and experimenting.

We are experienced managers with background in operations, marketing and finance. Our role in your enterprise will be that of a partner, a mentor and a fan. In addition to investing in your company we also help in strategy making and achieving operational excellence.

We are very excited to work with you.
