Nexit Ventures and the Team

In a nutshell, Nexit Ventures is the largest, oldest, and most experienced VC fund in Finland with numerous exits to leading global tech industry players. The Nexit Ventures team members have launched and developed several successful high-tech companies and worked for world-class corporations. In doing that we have picked up vast amounts of experience and expertise, and gotten to know some of the key players in the industry.

In other words, the Nexit team has been there. We understand the problems and have insight on the solution.

Activist VC principles

In the nearly two decades of successful Venture Capital investing we have developed a set of operating principles that create value for both our LPs and portfolio companies:

1. Selective and focused portfolio
2. Only very few companies for each partner to manage
3. Recognizing the need for changes fast and early enough
4. Having the guts to make big changes
5. Being able to execute the big changes
6. Being hands-on if needed

The Activist VC principles represents the condensed essence of our two decades of history – what we have learned and discovered. Our successes and failures over this period that have continually shaped our thinking and lead to the formulation of the principles. Countless meetings with entrepreneurs, colleagues, industry experts, and our own investors have also taught us a lot and helped us to fine tune the principles.
