We believe in independence, openness and clarity when partnering with entrepreneur-driven management teams.

Working model

We invest in seed and early stage companies, which are based in Scandinavia or Baltic countries. We focus on the management team with competence to build world class companies. Company has to have strong focus on R&D, knowledge on Lean Methodology and it should own its core technology.

When evaluating potential investments, we estimate whether the entrepreneurs has what it takes to grow idea to full size business. On idea side, the target company should offer solution for existing problem that is know in the industry.

At Arteel Ventures we believe Learn -> Build -> Measure cycle is the most efficient way to build start-up companies. That’s why we are really interested how company has build its analytics, how it collects user feedback and how this information is used on the company.
