Support to entrepreneursOur investors work with transformational enterprises and funds delivering positive impact.
Impact Invest Scandinavia’s investors are interested in scalable solutions across a variety of sectors including social integration, sustainable consumption, housing, and more. Our priority is impact in terms of social value creation. A business idea in the environmental/energy sector is of interest to our community, if this the business can also achieve social impact for customers, suppliers, or employees.
Our investors are primarily focused on companies with their HQ in the Nordics. Most of them wish to see annual turnover of at least 2MSEK/DKK/NOK (or equivalent) where the venture looks for expansion capital by debt or equity. Demand for the service or product must be proven.
If you are at an earlier stage, we refer to our Investment Readiness-programme or c/o Business. Please note that we do not raise funds for non-profit organisations.
We support companies’ different funding needs in finding equity and debt capital. For certain large grants we have also successfully helped entrepreneurs to write applications and business plans. Our current track-record is one out of five companies that we work with gets funded (part of total funding need).
To submit your enterprise or fund for investment consideration, please send an exec summary that shows how you fit our critiera to info(at)impactinvest.se As we are approached by many entrepreneurs, and as much as we would love to meet everybody in person, we can only do so once we know there is a possible fit.
How the Process Works
Your investment opportunity will be screened by our experienced entrepreneurs and investors, and if it fits our criteria, you will be invited to submit your business plan and financial projections to our deal management system.
- Once you have submitted your presentation it is reviewed and evaluated against our deal criteria (above). If there is a clear match, you will be invited into our process.
- We actively match investment opportunities to the members who are most interested in the kind of investment your venture represents. If your type of company is of interest to several members, you get invited to present live at one of our quarterly local or regional members meetings.
- If you are expanding internationally, we can introduce you to European partners.
Please understand that our members see dozens of investment opportunities at the same time. In practice this means that finding the right investor takes time and our track record is that 1 out of 3 companies that we introduce to the network receive funding.
