Venture

North-East has a strong focus on venture investments. Within the trends and transformations that North-East and the families have identified as strategic they are expected to contribute significantly to the portfolios’ returns and at the same time serve as a window to the future.

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:

  • Fintech
  • 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.

Personal Strategies

It is a common, human experience to be able – at least in retrospect – to identify turning points in life. Situations, where your life took a new direction and fundamental priorities shifted. These turning points are just as often the result of an inner resolve as of external circumstances. At North-East we work together with our families to develop personal strategies to navigate these turning points and ensure that the goals and dreams of our families become real.

My North-East

We have developed and maintain a unique reporting and analysis platform, My North-East. The platform delivers timely data-driven insight to our families and for our internal decision-making. My North-East includes all relevant data sources and provides an unmatched level of detail ranging from investments to philanthropy.

Asset Management

North-East Family Office Asset Management was founded in 2017 and handles North-East’s investments and, potentially, a nearly endless variety of investments, depending on the preferences of each family.

Healthcare​

Investments in healthcare are of strategic importance to us. At North-East we believe that the healthcare sector is tremendously promising as many significant, structural changes in the world influence the demand for healthcare products and services and will continue to do so in the decades to come.

Digital Technology

Digital technology is a strategic investment area at North-East. We strive to put digital at the core of our business operations wherever it makes sense, and to us, running a business in the digital age means using digital capabilities both to improve the outcome for our families and to increase operational agility.

Philanthropy Toolbox

In accordance with the priorities of our families, North-East is committed to breaking new ground within the realm of philanthropy. It is essential to our purpose of helping our families fulfil their potential and support their ambition to lead meaningful lives. We have a holistic approach to deploying resources and capital, and we design interventions and partnerships that best address the issues which matter to our families.

Private Organizations

Our families reside all over the world and often it is preferable to have a private organization nearby, working closely with both the family and North-East on a daily basis. The private organizations might be established previously or founded on our initiative and working seamlessly together with North-East.

Private Equity​

North-East Private Equity is a Singapore-based company whose major investors are the owners of the North-East Family Office. The company was established in 2015 in recognition of the significant growth- and investment potential in Southeast Asia.

Corporate Services

To fulfil the wishes of our families and deliver bespoke solutions, North-East operates and acts within a wide variety of corporate and organizational structures. Because, to put it colloquially, you cannot buy a package deal at North-East.

Cyber Security

In an increasingly digital society we become more vulnerable to cyber threats ranging from fraud, extortion, and espionage to cyber-enabled physical threats.
