Industrifonden is a Swedish based venture capital fund with approx. 400 MEUR under management that offers capital, competence and its network of contacts to small and medium-sized companies that want to grow. The fund's focus is on creating value in its portfolio companies. All investments are made on commercial terms together with entrepreneurs and co-investors.
The fund plays an active role in building value in its portfolio companies and takes a long-term approach as an investor, lender or guarantor. This long-term focus is possible thanks to the evergreen structure of the fund and its strong capital base.
Industrifonden invests directly in companies as well as through a network of regional venture capital firms. The fund routinely invests together with other investors. Industrifonden makes two types of investments in small and medium-sized companies: development capital for innovative tech startups and expansion capital for established companies that want to grow.
Industrifonden is an independent foundation founded by the Swedish state in 1979. It operates on a commercial basis without outside capital. Revenues are returned to the business for new investments. Industrifonden's board of directors, which is appointed by the government, is responsible for the fund's operations.
