The most important investment criteria are:

  • There must be a demand and a need for an active equity partner, as well as expansion capital, and thus 1–2 places on the board of the company.
  • Owners must be able to define a shared agenda with a horizon of 3–5 years.
  • As equity partner, Varenne must be able to make a concrete contribution to accelerating the development of the company.
  • Potential to double the company’s value in less than 5 years.
  • The investment should be in the order of SEK 20–40 million and may take place in multiple stages.
  • The company must have a proven business model, which means that the company’s core business should be cash-flow positive (excluding direct growth investments).
  • The company’s annual turnover should be in the range SEK 50–500 million.

Investment process

Varenne is fast-moving and agile when we feel it is appropriate, but at the same time has a structured and analytical approach to each new investment decision.

We start the process by going through the company’s business model, business plans, investment terms, etc. Most important of all, however, is getting to know the people behind the business. Our business concept is to be an equity partner to entrepreneurs who want to take great strides. Essential to this is strong relationships and a shared agenda.

Once the analysis process is complete, we draw up internal documentation for decision-making which is used as a basis for the Board’s decision on investment. If the Board approves the investment, a shareholder agreement is drawn up and the investment is made.
Then we start work on building the company together.
