Investment philosophy

Winterbackwoods makes investments of up to €50,000. The first investment is usually about half the total investment. We invest in Finnish start-ups. The start-up company usually already has a finished product as well as many customers.

Investment philosophy

Typical industries include SaaS and B2B services, e-commerce, and other subscription-based services.
The product should have a neutral or positive effect on some of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
Our investment philosophy focuses on the areas highlighted here, but SaaS products and software solutions in other areas could qualify as well.

Sweat-equity and help for “start-upping”

In addition to direct financial investments, we help start-ups and SMEs in selected development areas in the early stages of their business. Strategy, productization and online sales, and digital marketing are our strongest skills. We best understand the SaaS business, service sales, e-commerce, and the hosting business.
