Mist Ventures

Enable early stage investments in deep tech companies with a unique technology

Our Philosophy

WHAT WE LOOK FOR

We invest in the pre-seed/seed stages of scalable technology-based companies aiming for large international markets. The business shall be able to operate long term, with a core of future-proof technologies.

Founders with full focus on one product solving a significant, global problem. A team should be in place, consisting of brilliant, self-motivated people. Our approach is to support your growth “hands on”, therefore we prefer to invest in companies located within a not more than 3 hour flight from Copenhagen.

DEEP TECH

Mist Ventures invests in technology-based companies (deep tech) based on proprietary technology superior to to competition.

Our main areas of specialization, where we possess strong technological and industry backgrounds, are: embedded software, hardwave, ASIC, telecom, machine learning, and algorithms.

INVESTMENT

For us, the entrepreneurs is always first, therefore we strive for a smooth and simple investment process. We are also keen on encouraging motivation for founders – ensuring that they own the major shares of the company.

We invest up to 1M SEK, and aim to be involved in the company, so it can fully benefit from our experience.
