Portfolio development & realized capital

The companies in the Chalmers Ventures portfolio are developing well. The total value of the portfolio companies was SEK 900m when Chalmers Ventures began in 2015; while at the end of 2021, the total company value of the portfolio has increased to SEK 12.3b, of which SEK 8.3b is made up of the 16 listed companies that were added at the end of 2021.

Since it all began in 2015, Chalmers Ventures has realized SEK 131m in purchase sums from sold companies which is being reinvested through our evergreen fund.

This value development is evidence that the Chalmers Ventures model of creating new growth companies works, and that long-term commitment pays off.

Chalmers Ventures invests in early stages with the capacity to provide growth capital to selected companies. Chalmers Ventures is always looking to syndicate with other investors and has a large network of active players, from the very earliest stages to the later ones, leveraging the capital invested in the companies.

Chalmers Ventures invests in technology-based and innovative companies with growth potential. These companies must have internationally scalable growth potential and entrepreneurially driven teams, and must be or have been part of one of the Chalmers Ventures tracks and programs, or have other clear links to Chalmers.
