We support you as researcher or student at KTH in the journey to build companies or commercialize IP/patents. In addition to capital, we support with expertise, practical advice and networks to increase your chances of raising more funding and building a successful company.
Our investment offer
Enabling successful companies
We invest 250-400 KSEK as the first investor. Sometimes we invest even before incorporation e.g. in interesting research results and patents. We also do follow on investments in selected companies (up to approx.1 million SEK).
Experience from early stage
We have extensive experience of investing in early stage tech-based companies spun off from KTH research. We support you over time with all the challenges you will face e.g secure financing, building your team, develop business model.
Broad network and strong brand
Through us you get access to our broad networks e.g. investors. We bring a strong brand associated with KTH and that will be a seal of quality for your company.
We invest long-term, are patient and will support your journey for 5-10 years. We will always protect the company and support you e.g. in future funding rounds.
Did you know that we also invest in IP and patents from KTH? We can fund patenting of your idea with the aim of licensing or forming a company?
