Virtway Invest AB was founded in 2013 by Fredrik Nilsson, an entrepreneur and investor. We currently have offices in Gothenburg and Malmö. We invest in the companies in their early stages of development both in Sweden and abroad.
Our main goal, simply put, is to generate a great return on investment within a reasonable period. A second but equally important goal is to act in a socially responsible manner, particularly in regard to the environment. To attain our first goal, our long-term strategy for growth is to find and add to our portfolio promising, innovative companies in their early stages of development which are expected to generate a good return on investment within a reasonable time frame. When Virtway Invest makes investments, we do so with clear and well thought through growth and exit strategies. In deciding upon the acquisition of a company, we consider such factors as the industry involved and its growth potential, the quality of the company’s products, their stage of development and the market niche they occupy, the potential or actual demand, and the quality of the management. We also consider how best to divest our shares, should we decide to do so - what we refer to as our exit strategy.
We provide our companies with capital and we actively work on business development. As a result of these efforts we now own substantial stakes in several companies with excellent products, which have generated great interest in their respective markets.
Investment in companies in early stages of development provides the greatest potential for growth. This is especially true of companies in the rapidly expanding fields of information technology and virtual reality. We are not passive investors. We work together with our companies to create value in the best and most effective way possible. Our subsidiary, Indigo, is a case in point. Its leading technology has attracted interest among large companies in buying Indigo. Virtway Invest has decided to pursue such opportunities in order to provide an early reward to our investors. In the likely event that a favorable offer is received in the near future, we plan to exit Indigo.
Virtway Invest intends to distribute dividends to our shareholders and continue our growth strategy by adding new exciting holdings to the portfolio. Preparations have also been made for a possible listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. Our company now has almost one thousand shareholders, and counting.
