The startup scene in the Nordics is entering a new phase of maturity where established VC funds raise amazing sums to power European ventures. In June Creandum closed a round of €270 M and just reacently Northzone closed a round of €470M and EQT Venture of €660 M.
Entrepreneurs that made great exits contribute massively to the ecosystem’s early stages, so do also the Nordic Governments fund-of-fund structures as well as EIF. But there is now an increasing gap between the €30-50 M size funds and the Scandinavian based but European looking VC funds.
There is an opportunity to continue to develop the funding available for the ventures to reach their full potential and compete on a global market. And according to a new study by Copenhagen Economics the degree of innovation in the Nordics both in the ICT- and biotech sector need a doubling of VC capital to be on par with other countries.
Investing In VC is a long term commitment in a team that you believe will be able to pick the right ventures, manage them and exit them wisely. Returns should be 3-4 times the investment. Private investors are crucial to the governmental Fund-of-Funds and to institutional investors, making it possible to share due diligence, and legal cost as well as decreasing risk of VC fund investments.
This is why we think you should be interested
in coming to Nordic Allocation to learn more.
