Investments

Grimgold Ventures is typically a startups first external investor, preferably together with co-investors. I join at the very early stages, often before the market entry phase. Pre-seed and seed is my main focus, even though I may 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 fintech, biotech and ecommerce/marketplaces. To me the quality of the entreprenurial team is key.

 

Smart money

From time to time I take an active role, not operative, 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, open minded 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 entrepreneur. With increased focus on deal flow and new investments, the aim is to have a portfolio of approximately 12-15 startups by the end of 2023. The mission is to find a future Unicorn.
