What we do

What we look for

We invest in software companies in the Nordic region that are moving from venture to growth stage. The companies we invest in should have a proven software product or services.

We invest in companies that have, or will achieve, positive cash flow within 12 months, have revenues exceeding SEK 20m and have long-term growth prospects of +15% p.a. with +20% EBIT margin.

With equity investments ranging from SEK 20-250m, we seek significant ownership and board representation in order to create alignment of interests between entrepreneurs, management and investors.

With our hands-on experience in operations and marketing strategies, we assist our portfolio companies as they reach market leadership within their niches.

Experience

We believe entrepreneurs need investors with hands-on experience and strong international networks. This we provide.

We have worked with more companies and entrepreneurs in the sector than most other firms. This insight gives us a unique position and allows us to approach investment opportunities from a multitude of angles. Our extensive network within the software industry includes:

 

  • Operational leadership talent
  • CEOs, CTOs, CFOs, CMOs
  • Investment bankers
  • Technical talent
  • Entrepreneurs and investors

Speed

We have the ability to make decisions swiftly – within weeks rather than months. Our real-world experience in the industry allows us to bypass external management consultants and industry experts. Our thorough knowledge of the technology sector in the Nordic region leads to faster decision-making and increased likelihood of transactions.

Fun

We love what we do. The journey from start-up to industry leadership is hard work – but we have fun doing it.

Focus

Focus is essential for long-term, sustained success. That is why we only invest in software companies.
