Scale to Asia Through Japan

We are a new venture capital fund focused in the New Nordics

GET FUNDED

We back Entrepreneurs and Investors with bold goals to make the world a bit better and more interesting. We expect our startups to have Ninja Intelligence* and a kick-ass mindset. Together we will learn along the way!

We love tech, especially robotics, automation, health tech, AI and mobility, but we’re open-minded. Our ideal investments are around 2-4 million euros, following the standard terms in the Nordics like seriesseed.fi and Startupdocs. We’d also love to co-invest with the local investors, but if needed, we are happy to lead as well.

*Ninja Intelligence: Following the path of professional Ninjas who were brave, adaptive, loyal, proud, reactive and had immense dexterity.

WHY US

We are a venture capital firm with over 100 million euros to supporting scale-up goals in the Nordic and Baltic region. 

We know the investment size is not everything, and that’s why we’re proud to have an awesome network of great minds around the world, especially in Japan. We are backed by Honda, Panasonic, Omron and the Japan Bank for International Cooperation, making sure entering Japan has never been simpler!

We are a joint-venture by JBIC IG Partners and BaltCap.
