Minc works as the bridge between the investor and the startups - on the one end we vet the startups before they join Minc, and on the other we bring some of the most prolific and experienced investors to Minc.
Are you an investor and want to hear more, contact our Portfolio Manager, Ida.
Minc is currently in the process of initiating a co-investment company, Skåne Ventures, which it will later then manage and which builds on the lessons learned from the previous investment structure Fast Track Capital. The investment structures aim to support and develop the ecosystem for financing early-stage startups and continue to build the investor network in southern Sweden. Skåne Ventures is the new investment structure and the business incubators Minc, Ideon Innovation, Krinova and HETCH will collaborate to invite Business Angels and to create a deal flow of startups to invest in.
"Skåne Ventures plans to invest in 70-80 companies and has a total size of SEK 50-55 million. Ticket size for investors starts at 200 000 SEK. With Skåne Ventures, we aim to see at least 50% private investors with follow-up capacity and should include 40% of female investors" - says Rickard Mosell, Chairman and Senior advisor at Ideon Innovation.
This autumn, we have information meetings to inform more about Skåne Ventures and it is open for investors to show interest.
Minc is managing the co-investment company, Fast Track Capital (FTC). FTC exist to build the ecosystem and plays an important part for startups and business angels. FTC has some of the most experienced angels in Southern Sweden but also new angels, as well as angels from other parts of Sweden.
To be a part of Fast Track Capital and the Minc community has given me, as an investor, access to a great network. Not only have I made connections with other investors, but also with interesting startups. I’m also able to spread my risk by investing in the FTC fund since it consists of many different companies. Other than that, Minc also organises lots of fun workshops and events where you can get involved as an active investor on many different levels, depending on how much time you have.
I got the opportunity to sit in the nomination committee and to meet the incubator companies from Minc and Ideon Innovation. I believe in the FTC3 model where the start-ups can get a fast investment and have access to smart capital in our Angel network. In turn the angel investors have access to interesting cases in the FTC3 portfolio.
