Our Investment Focus – Sustainable Digital Technologies

 
We invest in startups where digital technology is the key component to the business model. We seek visionary teams that aspire to build a game changing company, using sustainability as a competitive advantage. We like deep tech / IPR heavy companies with a B2B model. We are especially fond of value propositions in the renewable, ocean, e-health and financial space or other industry verticals where Norway has a global industrial position. That said, we will not exclude any world class teams with an unfair advantage in the digital space.  
 
We look for companies that don’t have fully commercialized products. Revenue from beta stage products and pilot customers is perfect.
Startups with a great plan, but no revenue (yet) is also of great interest to us, in addition to beeing less than 5 years old.
 

ProVenture - an active investor

In ProVenture we believe in being "close and personal" to our portfolio companies.   An open and transparent communication warrant a successful partnership.
Our main focus is to ensure that relevant actions are aligned with the company strategy, both long term and short term.

  

Our investment process

Our investment process guarantee a thorough quality control before the decision is made to invest in a company. As an active investor our investment team works side-by-side with the entrepreneurs to offer strategic advice and help solve unique challenges.  Together with the start-up team we establish a mutually agreed exit strategy from day one.
