Investing in Exceptional Teams in the Baltics & Scandinavia

Where and how we invest

Seed Stage Startups 🚀

With the Seed Fund we invest in scalable technology-driven startups. We make €75-200K checks in the seed stage, typically as part of a larger round that gives at least 18 months of runway.

We focus exclusively on founders from the Baltics and Nordics and would like the startups to show initial client and market validation.

We are active investors often participating as supervisory board members or advisors to the team. As we run our process quickly and often commit to investment rounds before a lead investor, a big help we give to the founders is opening doors to our network of friendly VC funds.

High Growth SMEs 🦌

With the Growth Fund we are buying minority shareholdings in high growth SME-s in Estonia. We like to work with gazelle-like companies that have an ambition to take their firms to the next level.

Our strategy is to acquire a minority shareholding in exchange for EUR 300K-700K investment. With our investment, companies can either realize a market, an M&A opportunity, or provide a partial exit possibility to the shareholders. When entrepreneurs seek to gain a bank loan, our investment can also be an equity component of such ventures.

In addition to investing in your company, we also help in strategy making and achieving operational excellence.

Synergy with founders

Most importantly, we invest in smart people. As we stay in companies for 5-7, or even more years, there needs to be a good mutual fit.

We are experienced managers with a background in operations, marketing, real estate and finance. Our role in your enterprise will be that of a partner, a mentor, and a fan.

We are very excited to work with you.
