INVESTING IN ICELANDIC
START-UPS

Accelerating Global Growth

 

INVESTMENT STRATEGY

Our goal is to help Icelandic entrepreneurs turn their ideas and vision into successful companies.

Since 2015 we have invested early in companies and understand that success takes hard work, dedication and sheer perseverance. We give our companies personal guidance and provide them with the resources and expert advice they need to run their vision into reality.

In return for the invested capital and support Brunnur acquires a minority share. Our initial capital investment ranges from US$1-3 million, with up to US$13 million allocated for follow on investment.

For seasoned entrepreneurs and stellar teams that are just getting started we have a standard term sheet for pre-seed rounds with pre-emptive rights for the next financing round to enable them to prove their business fundamentals. 

 

ALL PARTNERS WITH HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE

Brunnur's investment team has decades of experience in start-ups both success and failures in global markets. From founding, early-stage to growth and exit in tech based industries, each team member has seen it all.
