Finnish Industry Investment Ltd
Finnish Industry Investment Ltd is a government-owned investment company. We promote Finnish business, employment and economic growth through venture capital and private equity investments.
Investing in Growth
Finnish Industry Investment invests in Finnish companies, both directly and through private equity funds. We invest in rapid growth, internationalisation, spin-offs, major industrial investments, as well as sectoral, corporate and ownership restructurings.
We are part of the Finnish national innovation system, which seeks to stimulate Finnish industry, promote the development and deployment of new technology, while creating new growth companies, jobs and wellbeing. We contribute to the innovation system services by providing venture capital and private equity financing to companies. Our key principle is to work hand-in-hand with private investors from Finland and abroad, to share risks while boosting the availability of funding, investment expertise and networks.
Since 1995, we have made investments totalling EUR one billion. In recent years, our average yearly investment volumes have hit EUR 100 million, divided equally between fund investments and direct investments. Our portfolio currently comprises close to altogether 500 companies. Internal cash-flow financing from exits and governmental equity injections have secured our continuous and growing investment activity. Finnish Industry Investment’s operations are governed by law and must be profitable in the long-term.
