Here at Wellstreet, we are absolutely obsessed with building the best relationship possible with our portfolio, our investor network and our close community. That is why in our selection process we value companies whose next biggest challenge is something we can support them with because we have the skills, expertise, resource or network to do so. We are the right investor when they need something we have succeeded in before since we are ourselves entrepreneurs.
And that is exactly why we are so delighted to announce that the Wellstreet team won the prize of “Best Entrepreneur Support Team in Nordics by CFI.co Awards 2020. We are beyond words with this acknowledgment and humbled by CFI’s choice gives us this accolade. Thank you!

We would like to shine a light and thank our community for the trust placed on our services, especially the founders of our portfolio, prospects and other companies that we were able to support. We aim to make these startups thrive through different platforms, making investments in the most varied ways. Either with the programs with Google for Startups and with AWS or opening up space for young future entrepreneurs in a lab such as the Makerzone space, we believe that when you create the grounds for human development in a sustainable framework you are bound to foment success. The success of our community is our success!
That’s a great start to the year and we promise to keep on aiming higher and higher, for all of you!
The judge’s report:
“Wellstreet: Best Entrepreneur Support Team (Nordics) 2020
Founded in 2016, Wellstreet operates with a forever-forward mentality. The group has established an ecosystem of support for entrepreneurs who are making a difference — and making money in the process. Wellstreet takes great ideas and helps make them a sustainable reality. It takes great start ups and makes them better. Wellstreet is an investment firm that has in its ecosystem everything an early-stage start-up might need, which includes physical space, strategic advisory and two venture building programs, to which the start-ups have access once they become part of the portfolio. Wellstreet employees are an international skilled team with expertise spanning over 20+ years of entrepreneurship and fundraising projects. Their operational hands-on approach means that the entire staff works seamlessly together to help promising companies reach their full potential. The group has served as a bridge to market scalability for over 30 companies since its launch. The Wellstreet team takes the time to vet prospective portfolio companies and only invests when, beyond money, the startup will benefit from the Wellstreet’s particular set of experiences. In addition, they must have the right mindset and bright leadership. Wellstreet measures success, not in portfolio size or profits earned, but in the calibre of the businesses it has helped build. Wellstreet recently inaugurated the biggest innovation and tech hub in the Nordics: The Factory by Wellstreet, a glittering glass building outside of Stockholm totalling more than 14,000 square metres. A special “Makerzone” encourages people of all ages to set their imaginations free and start creating. In partnership with 140 teachers, some 12,000 people have access to services, ranging from Lego projects to programming courses. CFl.co recognises a company moving the needle on sustainability, one start-up at a time. The judges present Wellstreet with the 2020 award for Best Entrepreneur Support Team (Nordics).”
