FOUNDERS’
Edge

Early stage investments from founders to founders.

About Us

We are Helsinki based angel investors with a passion for new ideas, a track record of building successful businesses, and deep experience as active angel investors.

We work with extraordinary founders who have a passion for their business and the right combination of skills to deliver their vision.

As ex-entrepreneurs we know how hard the journey can be and work closely with founders to maximize their success – from product validation to growth, and the creation of valuable companies.

OUR FOCUS

Stage: We focus on early-stage startups in Finland, the Baltics and other Nordic countries, from idea / pre-seed up to pre-Series A.

Sector: We have an affinity for startups with a B2B SaaS component, but also invest outside of this focus area.

Role: We prefer to lead, but also co-invest with other angel investors and seed funds.

Ambition: We like founders with a clear vision for how their product will create 10x value for their customers compared to the alternatives.

Edge: We love founders who have the right combination of skills, experience and vision – what we call ‘edge’ – to deliver their vision.
