I’ve worked with several venture funds and accelerator programs over the years managing 100+ investments. Through that work, I have personally deployed over $11,000,000+ USD in funding to startups.
These are funds that I’m presently actively involved in and have a carry stake in their performance.
Spring Capital (Estonia)

Spring Capital is an Estonian based seed stage venture fund investing in both the Baltics and Scandanvia. I’m part of the Investment Committee and help evaluate deal flow in addition to mentoring the portfolio. Want to pitch the fund? Fill out this form and also be sure to let me know.

Fund II ($1.5M)
The Nordic Web Ventures invests in ambitious pre-seed Nordic startups. I’m a small LP investor in the second fund from Neil Murray.

Katapult is a leading impact-tech accelerator located in Oslo, Norway. Today I serve as a Growth Mentor.
I’ve worked previously the following venture funds and as a result, have a carry stake in their performance.
FUND III ($85M)
500 Startups is largest early stage venture fund based in Silicon Valley. Through this fund I ran the Silicon Valley based accelerator program.

I sometimes make small personal investments although I primarily invest through the venture funds I’m associated with. Here’s a few:
Iterate is a venture builder based in Oslo, Norway.
Sharebox simplifies your handover by offering a service completely managed by your phone.
LeapIN is a solution to start and remotely run your location independent company online, in Estonia
Occasionally I do in fact pick a winner! While the funds I’ve worked with have had many exits, these are the companies I was directly involved with and/or responsible for their investment. This list includes investments that resulted in a positive return so it does not include soft landings or acqui-hires.

I get a lot of startup pitches, mostly bad ones. I currently only do personal investments with companies I know, wait for it, personally. However, if you think you’re a match for a fund or accelerator I work feel free to send something over.
