What we look for
Kinnevik partner with transformative, long-term sustainable companies that make people’s lives better
We look for fast-growing businesses that leverage disruptive technology to create new markets or redefine existing ones, wherever they are. They are made up of ambitious, diverse teams with long-term mindsets. The companies we back create innovative products and services and build the proprietary infrastructure necessary to scale efficiently as demand grows.
We focus on broad investment themes in which disruptive technologies provide the opportunity to significantly upend the landscape. These themes are often connected to industries served by incumbents that have built market share based on sustaining technologies.
The sectors we focus on are healthcare, software, marketplaces and climate tech. We invest in Europe and the US.
We believe companies should provide customers with products and services that deliver more choice, less complexity, superior experience and better value because these attributes drive brand loyalty, referrals and organic growth.
Innovative companies have the potential to solve an existing problem in an entirely new way or for an entirely new group of customers.
We focus on providing patient capital and operational support to scale private or public businesses with a track record, but we will selectively invest earlier and later for the right opportunity.
We look to deploy capital to regions that nurture innovation. Such areas are typically characterised by strong technological adoption, high or rapidly growing incomes, consumer empowerment, and an established local financing market.
