Experience

Over the years they have built an international network of entrepreneurs, executives, large technology companies, governments, service providers, VC's, and fund investors to ensure that they support companies in every way possible. Their headquarters is in Sweden, but they invest in companies all over the Nordics.

How much do they invest?

The Creandum funds initial investment can be as small as a couple of hundred thousand euros and can go up to 10 million euros over the life cycle of a company. In addition to financial support, they also help with recruiting, advisory boards, office spaces, and a global network. Once they decide to invest in your idea they give you all the time and expertise you need to help you succeed.

How do they work?

The Creandum funds have invested in companies before they incorporated as well as in companies with tens of millions of euros in revenue. They are available to discuss your plans and ideas to see if you have something they believe can succeed.

This makes a difference to them

They will not invest unless the entrepreneurs have ambitions. You need to have drive, believe in your idea and want to work to succeed. They invest in innovative and fast-growing companies, companies that can change industries and are led by the people that make it happen.
