Investment strategy

As an incubator and accelerator, we are a non-profit organization that exists due to Chalmers’ and Sweden’s efforts for economic growth through the realization of entrepreneurial startups. On the investment side, we are a profit-driven organization with an overall goal to finance tomorrow’s growth companies based on an evergreen structure, with the purpose to further strengthen economic growth in the region and Sweden as whole. In other words, we increase the availability of venture capital for early-stage companies that, due to the level risk, struggle to receive it from the private capital sector.
