SEB VENTURE CAPITAL
SEB Venture Capital creates opportunities for entrepreneur and business owners to build and develop successful companies. Our goal is sustainable and long-term value creation.
Our main investment areas are emerging companies within technology and life science (expansion phase) as well as more mature growth companies in most sectors. We invest in sustainable growth – preferably in companies with unique products, services or market positions that offer a sustainable competitive advantage, with an international potential. Another key investment criterion is a skilled and committed management team that is, or want to be, co-owners of the company.
We operate as an evergreen fund, which gives us the flexibility and staying power to focus on long-term value creation based on what is best for the company and its owners. Over the past 15 years, we have developed a best-in-class network of industrialists, advisors, industry experts and market analysts in the Nordic region and internationally. SEB's global contacts and in-house specialists are important connections in this network.
Our investment horizon is four to seven years, a time-frame during which we strive to change the ownership structure of the company – through an industrial sale, a financial sale or an IPO. Our investments typically range from 20 to 100 MSEK, giving us a significant minority holding in the company.
Since the start in 1995, SEB Venture Capital has made over 90 investments and divested 60 of them. Our main investment geography is the Nordic region, but we also do technology investments in the UK and growth investments in the Baltics.
