HOW WE INVEST

We are deeply interested in high-technology companies in Europe and Western countries that have commercial potential internationally, especially in the Chinese and US markets.

Our initial focus has been on Finland and Germany due to their deep pools of talent.

MEET THE TEAM

Our partners are our most valuable assets and are incentivized to drive an optimal outcome. They help bridge start-ups to international markets in order to realize ambitious growth aims. Our backgrounds in China will add China ‘genes’ to portfolio companies.
