Find out about Sitra's investment in a new management system to increase the smart use of electricity and save companies money...
Sitra invests in domestic early stage companies mainly through venture capital funds.
Sitra actively participates in the development of its portfolio companies. The companies are able to use Sitra's internal expertise and extensive networks.
Sitra's portfolio currently includes investments in approximately 20 companies. The companies operate in fields such as energy, life sciences and IT and environmental technology, as well as industrial production and services.
The main focus of our investment activities has shifted towards fund investments. Sitra’s investment activities are market-driven; i.e. investment transactions are conducted in compliance with the same investment principles as those that govern other investors. In addition to achieving a high financial return, Sitra uses investments as a tool for promoting its strategic goals by selecting targets with a social impact, such as the more effective use of industry sidestreams or advancing the adoption of self-care solutions.
Sitra's operations comply with the principles of socially responsible investments. Sitra commits to the ownership and development of the portfolio company for an average period of 4 to 10 years. Exit from a portfolio company will be carried out according to a specific plan prepared together with all other co-investors. Sitra is an active owner and typically nominates a representative to the board of directors.
Sitra grants no subsidies or free support to companies. Please visit Enterprise Finland for information on services and funding for small and medium-sized companies available from other organisations.
