Our (not so) secret sauce

Growing through creative collaboration

Whilst we don’t believe in one overarching strict system telling us how to go about our investments, there are still some things we believe in. Most importantly, we are here to create value. Investing in businesses where we can be a supportive partner to entrepreneurs, management teams and co-owners, we believe in creating value by being an active lead investor, closely involved in strategic matters like recruiting, financing, international expansion and add-on acquisitions. We get that these beliefs sound quite general, but we pride ourselves in executing them better than most.

What we look for

We are a growth-oriented investor with an aim to help build extraordinary businesses in the Nordics, Europe, the US and beyond. Although based in Stockholm, Sweden, the team at Fidelio has invested in over 150 companies in about 20 countries across the world. While most of the opportunities we get involved in typically fit within the following criteria, every business is unique and we evaluate all situations where we believe we can create enough value for Fidelio and our partners. Please reach out to us so that we can discuss your specific situation and needs.
