We are a 123MEUR, for-profit, impact VC fund, born out of Norrsken Foundation – a non-profit foundation founded in 2016 by Niklas Adalberth, co-founder of Klarna, with the belief that entrepreneurs building rapidly scalable businesses are our best bet to solving the hardest and biggest problems, such as poverty, famine, environmental issues, mental health, and integration.
Norrsken VC operates independently, but shares the same values and mission with the Norrsken Foundation - we want to enable the next impact unicorn – a company that has a positive effect on one billion lives. When you become part of Norrsken VC - you join Europe’s largest ecosystem for impact tech entrepreneurs.
This financing is made possible through financial backing of the Swedish Government owned company Saminvest AB. Norrsken VC is also supported by InnovFin Equity, with the financial backing of the European Union under Horizon 2020 Financial Instruments and the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI) set up under the Investment Plan for Europe. The purpose of EFSI is to help support financing and implementing productive investments in the European Union and to ensure increased access to financing.
