How we invest

Phase: Early stage and growth phase
You have proven that your technology works and you have earned first revenues? Customers love what you offer and do not mind paying for it.

Sector: Energy and enabling
You do your business in the energy sector or in a related sector and you are at the forefront of its change?
We also love technology companies that enable other players to do their share of disrupting energy markets. In addition to core energy topics like Distributed Generation and Storage, Trading, Smart Grid, Retail and Energy Services this includes topics like IoT, Industry 4.0, Analytics, Automation, IT security, Electric vehicles & Smart Transportation, Smart Cities, Smart Home and Platforms.

Ticket size: 0.5 - 4.0 million EUR
You are looking for an investment in the range of 0.5 to 4.0 million EUR from Statkraft Ventures in your current financing round? We are happy to syndicate for larger rounds. And we will keep some powder dry for follow-on rounds.

Region: Europe
You are based in Europe or have relevant operations here?
We are opportunistic - we also might consider start-ups outside Europe, if there is a local syndicate partner we trust.

Approach: Lead-investor with value added
You want us to take the lead or co-lead role in your group of investors?
We take board-seats and we roll up our sleeves. At the same time we acknowledge that you are the entrepreneur.

We are exit oriented: We believe that start-ups can grow fastest if they are independent. Therefore we do not take any strategic rights. We are a shareholder, just like any other venture capital investor.

If you are interested, we can help you use synergies with the entire Statkraft Group. Statkraft could help you by providing its market know-how, its customer base or its technological expertise.
