Helping founders turn their good ideas into profitable businesses

We invest in early stage tech companies with good ideas, and with good ideas we mean ideas that also leave some kind of positive impact.


What's important to us

VEQ invests in early stage companies with innovative, digital and scalable businesses, where technology is the core of the product, or the way you sell and deliver the product

For us, the team behind the company is everything. We look for founders who show grit, intelligence, and maybe most of all, integrity and a moral compass pointing in the right direction.

We are not like other VC’s. Our experience from having worked hands-on with dozens of founding teams, not only giving strategic advice, but writing the lines of code, and the pool of resources available to us through VNTRS, makes us one of the few hands-on operational venture capital investor in the Nordics and Baltics.

What we look for

Our story

VEQ was born from our vision to help entrepreneurs turn their good ideas into profitable businesses. We’re also entrepreneurs and investors who have been in the same shoes as the people we want to invest in. We look for entrepreneurs sharing our core values of being adventurous, inspiring, and caring. We believe that diversity and sustainability are drivers of profitability and not only words used in an investor presentation.

Before VEQ was started, we had already backed some twenty start-ups with hands-on resources through sweat equity investments in VNTRS. We are so happy to now be able to continue supporting you, all entrepreneurs out there wanting to do good in the next step of your journey.
