Katalysen is proud to announce a new partnership with the Nordic venture fund Corinthian Venture Partners (CVP). From its base in Oslo and Stockholm, CVP will seek to invest in Nordic startups in growth and scale-up phases. CVP will in the beginning have a particular focus on Norway, as the country has much potential in catching up to its Nordic peers in terms of venture investments. CVP will address this opportunity by riding on the current wave in Norway away from Oil & gas towards innovative companies that can diversify the economy.
"We are extremely pleased to be working with such a respected player in the Nordic venture ecosystem. Katalysen has an amazing history and talented management team and we look forward to collaborating in order to deliver value on a myriad of opportunities across the Nordics”, says Kai-Stefan Einvik, co-founder and managing partner at Corinthian Venture Partners.
With CVP's management team's experience in entrepreneurship and finance, complemented by a curated professional network, partners, and venture advisors, CVP aims to provide more than just capital, like offering Katalysen’s execution and risk-mitigation capabilities. CVP and Katalysen have entered into a partnership to explore specific opportunities through combining expertise, networks, and advisors.
“With the aim to bring valuable expertise to its portfolio companies, in addition to the invested capital, CVP's mindset is closely aligned with that of Katalysen. We love collaboration. Together with CVP, we see a promising opportunity to strengthen our role as a venture partner and generate value for our portfolio companies”, says Katalysen’s Peter Almberg.
