Our Investment Process
We will work through our partner network, our teams in Oslo, and partners in Stockholm to follow and interact with the right companies which have proven a solid track record through their early phase.
We will aim to make 10 new investments the next five years, with focus on team, timing, and investment area
We put cash in for rapid scale-ups, to help bring the team’s vision to life. We make introductions, and fuel global ambitions through working hands-on with management and the board.
We are not locked to any fixed cycles. Whether to a strategic buyer or as an IPO, companies exit when they reach maturity or when they have established a strategic position in the ecosystem.
