Industrifonden is an early stage venture capital fund based in Stockholm, Sweden.

We see today’s science and ground-breaking technologies as the foundation for the industries of tomorrow. That is why we seek out the most transformative ventures to invest in. Those with the power to change the way we live for the better and those that have a real, meaningful impact on society.
We partner with entrepreneurs, innovators and scientists whose discoveries are laying new ground for our future – for industries that may not even exist yet. We invest in early growth stages, seed to A round funding. Initial investments are typically 10-50 million SEK but we have the power to invest considerably more during our holding period.
We believe in being an active investor; in sharing our 40 years’ experience of scaling and growth. However, we do not take an operational role in our portfolio firms.
Our portfolio of companies spans the Nordics, but all have a Swedish connection.
