Our approach


We make minority investments in Finnish companies together and on the same terms as other investors. We aim to maximize our societal impact and economic value in our investments.

Value creation
and active ownership

Our role in the syndicate is always adapted to the needs of the company. Together with our co-investors we also bring external professionals to the boards of our portfolio companies – always based on the company’s needs.

Part of the international
VC & PE community

We have strong networks in the international venture capital and private equity community, and good visibility into Finnish deal flow. In addition to capital, we provide business expertise and international networks to help implement our portfolio companies’ growth strategies.

Strong and
experienced investor

We are a financially strong and stable investor with a long investment horizon. The members of Tesi’s teams are experienced in investing in different industries, value creation, board work as well as advisory and consulting services.

Larger rounds
for companies' needs

Together with EIB, we channel the investments of the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI) to fuel the growth of Finnish companies. A typical investment is EUR 15-30 million per company. As always, we make minority investments together with other private investors, whose share of the investment round must be at least equal to the combined share of Tesi and EFSI.

and impact

Companies impact our society. Together, we solve the challenges of sustainable development e.g. by investing in the circular economy. By financing innovative companies, we improve competitiveness and raise Finland to the forefront of renewed economic growth.
