Our role

Bonnier Ventures is the venture arm of the Bonnier Group. As a financially driven corporate venture investor, we make minority investments in fast growing digital technology companies across multiple growth stages. With a stronghold in the Nordics and ambition to scale globally.

Our approach

Free from the limitations of a fund structure and holding periods, we can be a flexible investor and partner in supporting our companies in their growth agenda.

Besides providing capital, we help our founders by leveraging our network and through active board engagement and management support. This starts with markets where we can utilize our domain experience and understanding of consumer behavior.

Bonnier Ventures is run by a dedicated team based in Stockholm, with investor partners in several geographies in US and Europe.

Our focus

While media is in our DNA, a common misconception about us is that we only look for companies with media affinity. On the contrary, we actively source for high-growth digital and technology companies in sectors including, but not limited to, HealthTech, GreenTech, EdTech, FinTech, AudioTech and SaaS.

We are flexible investing with capital and/or media assets, depending on the needs of the company.

We are comfortable leading an investment, co-leading or joining a syndicate with other strategic or financial investors.
