Voima Ventures funds research-based deep technology. Pharmaceutical technology is interesting, drug development is not. Content (e.g. game) development is also not interesting, but related technology is.
They collaborate closely with universities and innovation service providers, for example universities’ internal innovation services.
They prefer to co-invest or lead. They seek a board seat when investing. In early stages they prefer to be actively involved in the management of the company.
Superhero Capital invests into early-stage companies in Finland and Baltics. They prefer insight-driven software companies. Hardware can also be interesting, if a big part of the value is in the software side.
Gorilla Capital focuses on companies whose revenue is €4k – €300k per month. They look for capital efficient companies that focus on the business, not just the product. These are usually software companies. Hardware is ok, if the main value is in the software side.

Their sweet spot is €100k for very early stage companies and €300-500k for early (seed) stage ones.
