Haltian, a global IoT and development house based in Oulu, Finland, has raised a EUR 6.6 million funding round. The funds raised will further support the company’s strong growth, which surpassed 71 per cent last year. Haltian will use the growth funding to, among other purposes, to open new markets in North America and to grow the product development teams and hence, the product range.

Investors in the round include, for instance, Inventure, Nordic Option, Ventic, as well as other Finnish and Swedish private investors, in addition to Tesi (Finnish Industry Investment).

Tesi’s investment was the first one to be made from the EUR 100 million co-investment facility agreed to between Tesi and European Investment Bank (EIB) in late 2021. The facility is part of European Guarantee Fund (EGF). The financing under it will enable larger funding rounds, improves the companies’ capabilities for larger investments, and channels EU-growth capital into Finnish SMEs.

Furthermore, an investment in Haltian was also made from Tesi’s temporary Venture Bridge special investment programme that closes at the end of March 2022 concerning applications for initial investments.

”Haltian has proven itself as one of the leading IoT houses in Finland, showing impressive growth figures and international customer references. We are happy to invest in the company together with other strong investors”, elaborates Juha Lehtola, Director of Tesi’s Venture Capital team, the investment decision.
