In order to help Estonian start-up companies and well-established and fast-growing companies expand and finance their growth here, KredEx provides venture capital through funds of funds. The activity is aimed at providing sufficient local capital and the comprehensive development of the venture and private equity market. This requires contributing to the development of fund managers and raising interest among investors towards investing in local funds. Only fund managers with a proven track record are capable of involving a sufficient amount of capital from private investors. For investors, in turn, it is important to have constant investment opportunities of a suitable risk level and size.
Within the framework of defined investment strategies, the provider of public capital will choose the fund managers, who, in addition to public funding, involve on the same grounds their own money and that of private investors, and who are responsible for the investment decisions and results of their established funds. KredEx does not interfere directly with the activity and decisions of fund managers.
KredEx does not make direct venture capital investments into companies; therefore, any companies interested in including investments should contact the fund managers directly.
KredEx cooperates closely with market participants and international institutions, including the Estonian Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (EstVCA), Estonian Business Angels Network (EstBAN) and their members, the European Investment Fund (EIF) and the European Venture Fund Investors Network (EVFIN).
