The story of EQT Ventures
With the mission of being a different kind of VC, EQT Ventures is fuelled by some of the world’s most obsessive company builders, engineers, designers, marketers, data scientists and scaling experts. These serial entrepreneurs and specialists, with experience from companies such as Booking.com, King, Spotify, Lithium and Hotels.com, makeup EQT Ventures' advisory team of in-house operating partners, providing advice and support to the manager of the EQT Ventures funds. EQT Ventures offers value-added services when needed to support ambitious founders on their journeys to global success.
EQT Ventures funds' company growth is further supported by EQT’s established network of more than 500 Advisors. This network features a variety of global business leaders and successful entrepreneurs.
The EQT Ventures Advisory Team is based in Stockholm, London, Berlin, Amsterdam and San Francisco, supporting the fund management team in Luxembourg.
Investing in ambitious founders and innovation
The EQT Ventures funds employ a multi-stage strategy to make equity investments typically ranging between EUR 1 million and EUR 75 million, from late seed rounds all the way to growth rounds. This means the EQT Ventures’ support window is wider than a typical single-phase fund, recognising the entrepreneurial journey to build a global success story is a marathon and not a sprint.
The EQT Ventures funds do not focus on particular markets or industries as transformational shifts in technology are occurring across all industries. The focus is on ambition and scale. EQT Ventures is looking for ambitious founders that want to build and grow global success stories, not just regional ones. These founders have to be passionate about what they do, have the stamina to make it happen, and understand the market from an international perspective. It is time for European entrepreneurs to think big and build international winners!
Once the EQT Ventures funds have invested in a portfolio company, the fund management team, advised by the advisory team of operating partners will support the business throughout its journey.
