We partner with entrepreneurs and leaders who we believe in, whose passion we share, and whose values we respect. We’re not just providing capital, we’re working together to create the conditions for success in each and every one of our businesses. We also help our businesses adopt sustainable business practices. This is particularly important as we invest in sectors that are critical to human needs, where trust is paramount and regulation is often required to safeguard customers’ interests. 

We demand performance from our investments, but we also have the patience and heart to understand that creating true value requires experimentation and commitment.

"Kinnevik is a visionary firm of great integrity, one that invests in transformational businesses. Part of the reason we love Kinnevik as a partner is your beliefs align with our own: customer first, be bold in innovating to serve the customers, and build quality products that will endure. Kinnevik, more than any firm I know, seeks to get to know the founder and the team assembled. They invest in excellent teams, observe them and constantly apply gentle pressure to improve both team and process, with a collaborative, supportive approach."
