Approach > Growth Support
On the road with you
As a fund, we are a combination of serial entrepreneurs and a strong pool of private capital. We know what it’s like to be in your shoes and, therefore, can help you through the ups and downs.
The support we offer you consists of the help from our Growth Partners and the backing from our partner Evli Bank, one of the biggest asset managers in Finland.
Our Growth Partners are the go-to people when you are looking for advice from a serial entrepreneur. We believe there are three things you as a founder should focus on: people, sales, and product. With their combined experience, our partners are the right people to support you.
Who we are
- Serial entrepreneurs with +10 founded companies
- Investors with +25 exits and +15 bankruptcies
- Curious people with never-ending hunger for learning

Our investment approach
We invest in fast-growing European companies across sectors.
We like companies which have proven their unit economics and scalability, already have a few million euros of revenue, and have founders who are exceptionally capable of execution.
We usually invest initially 5-10 M€ in Series A and Series B.
We stand for sustainability
Sustainability and responsibility are at the core of our philosophy and everything we do. We fund beautiful companies with exceptional people and strong purpose-driven mission since we are convinced it is the winning combination for the future.
