Grimgold Ventures could be a startups first external investor, preferably together with co-investors. I join at the very early stages, it may even be before the market entry phase. Pre-seed and seed is my main focus, even though I sometimes participate in later investment rounds.
What I look for
Grimgold Ventures invest seed capital in digital startups with considerable growth potential and scalable business models. I seek innovative ideas backed by brilliant and ambitious teams based in Sweden. I love ideas that simplifies everyday life and at the same time makes the world a little better place.
My sweet spot is the fintech sector, however, I look wider than that. My current startup portfolio includes companies within cleantech, fintech, biotech and ecommerce/marketplaces. The portfolio is growing with great care to the selection process. To me the quality of the entreprenurial team is key.
From time to time I take an active role contributing experience and perspectives from financial management, business development, media/pr, strategic planing and capital raising. In addition, with many years of experience as a professional coach and a vast business network, my ambition is to add more than capital in the ventures I invest in.
Flexible, long term and with a mission
As an independent private investor I am flexible and can adapt each investment to the current situation. My time horizon and exit plan for the investments will vary, but essentially, I’m in for the long run togheter with the entrepreneurs. With increased focus on deal flow and new investments, my aim is to have a portfolio of approximately 10-15 startups by the end of 2023. The mission is to find a future Unicorn.
