"The kissing period" is our way of ensuring mutual compatibility and alignment before embarking on the journey together.

We find great value in ensuring mutual compatibility and alignment, as well as understanding the DNA of your company, BEFORE committing to working together. 

We focus on getting to know you and the team, typically during a 3-months period. We’ll work closely with you to understand what value we can bring, and to align expectations from both sides.

Together, we will map out the opportunities, the challenges and the growth journey ahead

Only then, after this “kissing period”, you and we will know if a partnership feels right. This makes the final decision and commitment feel easy.

getting to know you, really. And for at least 3

The kissing
rule

People matter…and team dynamics are important to us. Every individual and team is unique and have their own strengths and perspectives, which is why our introductions are preferably done over a cup of coffee, where we can get to know one another.

Throughout our interactions we look for fit and common values. We cherish people with strong convictions, with the background and experience to back them up.

We do not take a  transactional approach to investing, but see this as the beginning of a long-term professional relationship based on integrity and transparency…and yes, working together also needs to be fun!

Scale Capital brings more than just capital; we bring decades of know-how, domain expertise and access to relevant networks and stakeholders in Europe and North America.

We bring our Scale advisor and investor network into play, with more than 80 industry and domain experts that can bring strategic and operational value, even before we invest in your company.

This is way for you, as founder, to assess our value add and expertise before making the big decision of bringing us on board as an investor and active partner.

We believe that term-sheets should be a kept simple, founder-fair and with the future scaling of the company in mind. That means no terms that hinder future fundraising or are misaligning interests of founders and investors. It has to be a win-win situation for all parties involved.

Before we close any deal, we actively work with your team to develop an acceleration plan, a 100-day plan covering all aspects of your business. That way everyone is well-aligned by the time the investment is transferred into the company account and ready to be put to work.

FAQ

Good questions. Good answers.

Why focus on the US market?

The United States is by far the largest economy in the world. It has one of the highest GDP pr. capita and a homogeneous market with 330 million consumers. The technology adoption is high, and the market for B2B technology products and services is the largest in the world. In many ways this is a dream market for ambitious tech entrepreneurs. 

However, it's a highly competitive market and the go-to-market strategy may look very different from what you are used to in your home market. 

Scale Capital has been working with technology companies for over a decade and developed and tested approaches for acceleration and scaling in US market; this involves setting up operations, finding product/market fit and scaling teams. In addition, we work with US partners to provide the required growth capital for every part of your journey.

Through an extensive network of more than 50 advisors, we provide expertise and value to founders whether it’s on the ground in New York or San Francisco, or the Nordics.

We help you win in the US market.

What do we invest in?

We invest in early stage technology companies at the growth inflection point between the Seed and Series A round and deploy $500k-$1.5M initially, with reserves for follow-on investments.

Our sweet spot is B2B tech founder teams in the Nordics, who are determined to build  global companies they can be proud of.

How do we add value?

We understand the entrepreneurs’ journey, as we’ve been down that road ourselves. We know how to listen and when to step in. We have been working with technology companies for over a decade and developed and tested approaches for acceleration and scaling in US market; this involves setting up operations, finding product/market fit and scaling teams, and together with our US partners provide the required growth capital for the journey.

We are company builders focused on scaling businesses and empowering change. We are an active partner for the duration of your company's growth journey.
