Biography

VNT Management Ltd manages Power Fund I and Power Fund II, venture capital funds with a focus on clean technology. Commitments to the funds total €80 million. Our investments are directed to Europe. Investments in other geographical areas require special decision by the Investor Committee. The target initial investment in an investee company is decided upon case by case but is normally between 0.5 and 5 MEUR. We will typically make investments at the first outside round and follow on stages.

Power Fund I and Power Fund II are both focusing on clean technology. This refers to a diverse range of products, services, and processes that harness renewable materials and energy sources; dramatically reduce the use of natural resources; and cut or eliminate emissions and waste. The special focus of the investments is on renewable and distributed energy generation and energy saving technologies, especially in electrical and power electronics applications. High interest is in innovations where different forms of energy are converted into electricity – e.g., wind and solar power, wave power and hydropower, and biomass – and in energy-saving applications such as power grid efficiency, electrical vehicles, variable-speed generators, and industrial drive trains.
