Collaboration with strategic venture partners – initially through fund investments – will provide insights into underlying structural and technological changes, thus informing and qualifying the overall investment planning.
Our strategic partners also provide access to individual investment cases, either as co-investments or as stand-alone. This enables us to create focused, value-based portfolio investments, which can be offered broadly and / or tailored to individual families.
It is in the North-East DNA to invest in venture. North-East was founded by entrepreneurs, which is why it makes sense for us to invest in newly founded companies to help strong ideas succeed.
We also make venture investments through our multi-stage venture fund, North-East Venture, which is based in Copenhagen.
The fund’s portfolio primarily contains direct investment in non-listed venture companies within four verticals:
- Re-commerce and online marketplaces
- Consumer lifestyle and sustainability
- AI and VR/AR.
North-East Venture invests in innovative companies that bring a technological edge as well as a focus on sustainability and a general ethical awareness to the market. The dedicated team can add value in all stages of a young company’s growth and works closely with founders to provide their idea with the best possible conditions for thriving.
As is the case everywhere in North-East, the work of North-East Venture is based on a set of values which has proven itself repeatedly. We only commit ourselves to a partnership when we find a genuine alignment of interests and values.
