About us

Investinor is an evergreen investment company funded by the Norwegian government. We invest in promising unlisted (private) companies aiming for international growth and expansion.

Investinor manages NOK 4.2 billion (MEUR 470) and invests on the same terms and conditions as private investors, with a clear exit strategy for all investments.

Investinor is one of the major venture investment companies in Norway, both in terms of manpower and capital under management. Our team has a superior overview of the market and attracts high quality dealflow.

Investinor’s team is a value adding mixture of engineers and business professionals with industrial and entrepreneurial experience.

Investinor has a long term perspective on its ownership in portfolio companies, is financially strong and has a consistent, credible investment philosophy.

BUSINESS MODEL

Investinor takes minority stakes (less than 50%) in the portfolio companies and always syndicates its investments with other investors. We then execute active ownership through board positions in our portfolio companies.

INTERNATIONAL PARTNERSHIP

One of Investinor’s ambitions is to be our international partners’ gateway to Norway, one of the world’s safe harbors for investments.

Our hands-on team enjoys a superior deal flow from buoyant Norwegian sectors, has deep knowledge of these sectors and excellent overview of the market.

CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

Investinor aims to be at the forefront of corporate social responsibility, and we expect the same level of dedication from our portfolio companies. Our portfolio companies must live up to Investinor’s ethical guidelines, or develop equivalent guidelines of their own.
