Our investment approach
software scales. it's profitable. and it solves real-world problems
At Zenith, we’re dedicated to backing the Nordic entrepreneurs building brilliant B2B software businesses. Zenith invests early in post-revenue businesses focused on solving real-world business problems. As a boutique fund, we work to build long-lasting relationships with each company in our portfolio. We see our role as going beyond funding. We’re there for the work. For the late nights. For the rollercoaster ride that is growing a business.
Community is at Zenith’s core. The Zenith community provides an online and in-person platform where our portfolio companies can meet as peers with leaders from across our industry to learn, connect, and grow.
Behind everything we do is a commitment to our ESG-principles. A great business can and should make a positive impact on our world. That’s why every company in our portfolio aligns with one or more of our ESG principles.
Our sweetspot is partnering with entrepreneurs at the early stages. Our initial investment is typically around €1 million for a significant minority share of the company. Our approach is hands-on, ensuring that we're not just investors but active partners. A major part of our capital is earmarked for follow-on investments, underscoring our commitment to long-term support. If you are a Nordic-based venture that aligns with these characteristics, Zenith is ready to be an integral part of your success story.
By using a combined top-down and bottom-up approach, we aim to stay ahead of the curve and invest in software companies led by obsessed entrepreneurs that have the potential to endure and excel, no matter what the future holds.
