Grimgold Ventures is a Stockholm based angel investor. I join startups at the very early stages, it may even be before the market entry phase. Pre-seed and seed is the main focus, even though I sometimes participate in later investment rounds.

What I look for

Grimgold Ventures invest seed capital in digital startups with considerable growth potential and scalable business models. I seek innovative ideas backed by brilliant and ambitious teams based in Stockholm, Sweden. I love ideas that simplifies everyday life and at the same time makes the world a little better place.


My sweet spot is the fintech sector, however, I look wider than that. My current startup portfolio includes companies within cleantech, fintech, biotech and ecommerce/marketplaces. The portfolio is growing with great care to the selection process. To me the quality of the entreprenurial team is key.

Smart money

From time to time I take an active role contributing experience and perspectives from financial management, business development, media/pr, strategic planing and capital raising. In addition, with many years of experience as a professional business coach with a vast business network, my ambition is to add more than capital in the ventures I invest in.

Flexible, long term and with a mission

As an independent private investor I am flexible and can adapt each investment to the current situation. Ticket size, time horizon and exit plan for the investments will vary, but essentially I’m in for the long run togheter with the entrepreneurs. With increased focus on deal flow and new investments, the plan is to have a portfolio with maximum 10-12 concurrent startups. One mission is to find the next impact Unicorn.
