Lack of funding is one of the key reasons why startups fail. We aim to support founders in their fundraising journey by helping them tap into global venture capital. All services for startups are free of charge.

Are you a startup looking for capital?

With an extensive network with family offices, angel investors, and venture capitals both in Sweden and abroad, we aim to connect you with the right investors to accelerate your growth.

Unorthodox Ventures

We have long engineering traditions in Skåne. We have good corporation between the public, the private and the education sectors. It allows us to come up with ideas but also has the structure to bring them up into viable companies. The Skåne soil is good for creativity. As Swedes, maybe we are slightly humble. We feel a bit like a well-kept secret and we'd love more investors to discover us.
