ESG 1.0 is dead. Welcome to ESG 2.0

what We are proud of
our esg framework
We don’t agree that startups are too early to think about or report on ESG. As a company builder, we believe we have a unique opportunity, and therefore a duty, to support companies to have ESG as part of their DNA from day 1. We have developed a unique framework to support our portfolio companies which we share with the startup and investor community.
We want to strengthen the Nordic ecosystem as a whole. In our view the space for investment and business development can benefit and thrive much more when the members of the community work towards the same goal. We encourage startups, portfolio companies, partners and peer investors to be a part of this friendly network based on mutual respect and support.
We support our entrepreneurs with the necessary resources to thrive. We identify opportunities that lead to success and have the highest survival rate in the industry. Our focus on proactive ESG ensures we're always working towards building a better future. We are a VC firm with a proven track record, dedication to our partners, and commitment to sustainability.
