Approach > Growth Equity
We help you conquer the world
We invest in fast-growing European companies across sectors.
From our investment program of 200 M€, we invest in companies that have found their product-market fit and are ready to scale.
We usually invest initially 5-10 M€ in Series A and Series B and have resources to follow-on until the exit.
Evli Growth Partners is a European late-stage VC joining companies typically in Series A or Series B.
We are looking for companies that have found a product-market fit in their core markets and are ready for scaling. Thus, we want to see proven unit economics and, typically, a few million euros of yearly revenue for the companies we invest in.
Yet, most importantly, we invest in people. Founders are the people we commit ourselves to and who run their companies, not vice versa. Mostly, we value exceptional capabilities of execution.
We operate from Helsinki, Finland, and consider the Nordic and Baltic countries as our home markets. However, we have a European approach and are willing to invest across the EU.
We are happy to invest across sectors. Thanks to our diverse entrepreneurial backgrounds, we feel comfortable with various business models and technologies.

How we work
We know our success is defined by the founders we partner with. Therefore, we try to work in the way that suits the current situation the best.
We typically assign two people for each portfolio company, to serve as board member and observer. However, no matter our role in the company, we’llwill work with you on an “if-needed” basis: if you need help with something – whether it’s strategic advice, an operational issue or something else – we got you covered.
We love to lead the rounds but, yet, we don’t have strict restrictions about our role. Most importantly, the round and the governance structure must help you in the best possible way.
