1 ¦ Select
Investo Capital is a Danish venture capital firm based in Aalborg. We invest in carefully selected Danish early-growth companies within tech business areas in the broad sense.
We look for companies that can scale globally and where we can add value while helping to provide great exit opportunities within approximately five years.
With your technology-oriented Startup, you are now planning to increase the size of the company!
Do you need strategic and financial support to realize your business ambition?
If that is the case, then you should contact us. With our experience in all aspects of how to improve value in a tech-Startup, we offer tailor-made participation and assistance in addition to the investment itself.
2 ¦ Invest
Our target group is innovative companies with proof of business, strategic thinking and strong growth prospects in Denmark. For us, strategic corporate concepts and competent management are essential features – We will participate with companies who are in a convincing competitive position.
It is at the core of our objectives that the Startup continues as an independent company, but when we get involved it becomes a company where the different owners build a partnership in order to enlarge the overall value to the benefit of all.
We invest in people and business models as integrated investment criteria.
The entrepreneur pursues the Startup’s growth objectives, and we provide our investment and expertise to provide business advantages.
Our investment focus is Technology, IT, SAAS- and med-tech.
3 ¦ U·ni·te
It lies in the nature of our collaboration that our offices and the Start-ups, we invest in, do not live door to door.
These challenges of collaboration are amplified, when employees work in multiple locations. However, we aim to co-work like a combined unit or a single entity: two or three united companies functioning as a single unit. Joint mission is the well-being and growth of our common company.
During this journey, we are bound to experience ups and downs, but the unity shall be the power which bring us forward.
All the above stated is why we have chosen Unite as one of our core values.
4 ¦ Exit
Exit strategies related to Startup funding are quite often misunderstood.
The “exit” in exit strategy is for the money, not the Startup founders or small business owners.
Startups looking for angel investors or venture capital (VC) definitely require an exit strategy, because investors require it. The exit is what gives them a return. And for the those who are starting, running and growing a business, but not looking for outside investors, they will probably need an exit eventually; but there’s probably no rush.
Investor exits normally happen in only two ways: Either the Startup gets acquired by a bigger company, for enough money to give the investors a return, or the Startup grows and prospers enough to eventually register for selling shares of stock to the buying public through a public stock market.
Together, we will define the exit strategy and timing. During the exit process, we will provide support and expert assistance and ensure that it will be a mutual success.
We have built a strong team, guided by experience, energy, availability and integrity.
We aim to make close and professional personal relations in order to achieve the best possible business development
in our common ventures.

Investing with the heart
The name of the company is no coincidence, as pointed out by Heartland’s CEO Lise Kaae: “We do not venture into business opportunities without having our hearts in it, and we only look for long term engagements. In that sense, our investment view is very much affected by the Holch Povlsen family values.
We believe that people create results, and when we look for new opportunities, we look just as much at the people we are partnering with, as we look to the actual investments. The right business plan is nothing without the right person to bring it to life.”
