KLINT VENTURES INVESTS IN EARLY-STAGE GROWTH COMPANIES AT AN ATTRACTIVE VALUATION AND HIGH POTENTIAL
An investment company, not a fund
Klint Ventures gives its investors access to high-potential companies at an early stage where it can add value to support the scaling of their operations. In contrast to most investment opportunities in this segment, Klint Ventures is not a fund, but an investment company.
Not being an investment fund gives Klint Ventures more flexibility, something which can be beneficial for the development of the portfolio companies. Specifically, since there is no end date as is typically the case of an investment fund, Klint Ventures will not be forced to sell a portfolio company.
Klint Ventures' long-term plan is to become a publicly traded company.
HOW WE INVEST
We invest in dedicated people in businesses we believe in. Technology is always an enabler. We are sector agnostic, but prefer sectors benefitting from structural change. Investments will primarily focus on Swedish companies, but may include investments in Norway, Denmark and Finland (Nordic countries) and wider Europe. Initially, we will make seed stage investments, and on occasion small allocations into pre-seed rounds.
OUR GROWING PORTFOLIO
Klint Ventures typically invests in late seed financing rounds or in Series A, referred to as early stage VC. However, for Klint Ventures to invest, the business model should be proven; the capital should primarily help driving growth. By this approach we aim to reduce the risk level.
The European Tech market is booming.
