Investor Chat with VNTRS and VEQ, venture studio that invests in early stage companies with innovative, digital and scalable businesses
VNTRS is a consultant and investment company. They help entrepreneurs and large corporations to build innovative digital products and services.
Today, less than 1 out of 10 startups become successful. Many of them are good ideas that aim to solve a problem that would make the world a better place. Sadly, plenty fail due to reasons that could have been avoided – We are here to change this. VNTRS vision is a world where good ideas become successful.
VNTRS has backed more than twenty start-ups with hands-on resources through sweat equity investments. The VNTRS team has now decided to expand their investment operations and recently started the new investment company VEQ (backed by Alfvén & Didrikson) to continue to support entrepreneurs within the VNTRS ecosystem. VEQ is Stockholm-based investment company, and want to back early stage companies with a diverse teams that want to make a positive impact. They invest in pre-seed and seed stages with a mandate all over Europe, focusing on the Nordics and the Baltics. Being a long term and active owner, the vision is to support founders and help them turn their good ideas into profitable businesses.
VEQ was born from our vision to help entrepreneurs turn their good ideas into profitable businesses. We’re also entrepreneurs and investors who have been in the same shoes as the people we want to invest in. We look for entrepreneurs sharing our core values of being adventurous, inspiring, and caring. We believe that diversity and sustainability are drivers of profitability and not only words used in an investor presentation.
VEQ will invest in pre-seed and seed rounds with a mandate all over Europe, with focus on the Nordics and the Baltics, where VNTRS also has presence. VEQ does not have a traditional fund structure and will be able to contribute and remain a long term active owner for as long as it makes sense for the company and VEQ. The initial plan is to invest 300 kEUR to 1 mEUR each in about a dozen start-ups over the next couple of years. Read more about their fund here.
