The true measure of a VC firm is their return on investments, but you can’t help but notice that Helsinki-based early stage VC firm Inventure has been making more and more noise in the past year, both with the quantity of investments and the growth of the organization. Today Inventure announces they’ve added on two new Venture partners who are working on expanding Inventure’s presence outside of their native Finland.
Taking a stake in Sweden Inventure has added on Daniel Lauren, who has been acting as an Angel investor as well as an entrepreneur; According to Inventure Lauren has founded or co-founded more than 10 companies since 2005. He has several successful exits behind, including Madeo in 2011 and Diversify in 2012.
And in Finland Inventure has added on Jonas Dromberg who established Bloomberg’s Finnish operations during the rise of Nokia but more recently has been an investor in startups like FundedByMe and education startup Eliademy.
“Their formal addition to the team allows us to expand our sourcing and investment activities in Sweden, as well as integrate their considerable experience and market perspective into Inventure’s team,” says Sami Lampinen, Managing Partner at Inventure.
