We love to invest our time, energy, contacts, and knowledge (and ca. 10 million euros) in your fast-growing company.

Partnering with the most beautiful European startups.

We are on a mission to accelerate the most beautiful growth companies with world-class resources to do more good. Brilliant inventions and responsible businesses deserve to grow. The more these companies grow, the better the world becomes.

We are building a €300 million funding program to invest in Series B (and Series A occasionally) stage companies. We spend most of our time in the Nordics and Baltics, but we are happy to talk with all European companies. We love to lead rounds, as well as to syndicate; the only thing that really matters to us is that the round helps you the best.

WE FUND YOUR GROWTH.
