Every startup business story is different,
but here are 35 typical success factors that we believe in:
After we invest, we really get to work. This is partly to get to know our portfolio companies well, but mainly to add value.
And because we can, of course. Between us, we have founded or co-founded well over 20 startups and have invested in and advised many more. Our joint upstart experience cover digital media and entertainment, TV and data broadcasting, mobile, interactive, SaaS, big data, IT consulting, metadata, digital data, property, finance and more.
Our roles in these ventures have covered everything from idea-generation and story-telling to product development, strategic planning, market analysis, partnership building, data monetization, direct-selling, managing and scaling BD and sales teams, sales and marketing, recruitment, legal, finance, trade sale, IPO and more.
And one more thing: We have great networks in international IT, lifestyle businesses and corporate finance.
And our preferred point of exit is when it has proven it – really.
The difference is implementation of go-to-market strategies, which is our home ground. We have done full or partial exits many times before: mergers, acquisitions, asset sales, strategic company sales, joint ventures, management buy-outs, IPO, earn-outs, reverse takeovers, etc. We are therefore familiar with the terms and the processes, and we know the partners who can help.
Through our presence in California, we can help Nordic startups enter a market where valuations are greater and growth potential is exceptional.
