Reliability is at the core of what we do
If you are an entrepreneur or a scientist with possible solutions to specific challenges targeted in our investment sphere, we encourage you to get in touch.
If we see a good fit with our mandate we will start analyzing your company, solution or technology in depth. Our investment process involves detailed scrutinization of various elements of the proposed investment prospect. This includes technology robustness, market relevance and potential value - and
impact. A positive outcome of the in-depth analyses could potentially lead to an initial investment from Sarsia.
Sarsia take a long-term perspective when it comes to financing, and prospects are supported through progressive rounds of capitalisation.
A typical first round of investment will be on the order of 2-5 million NOK, for a 10% to 40% ownership stake. If we see ambition and dedication, a realistic development plan and a credible team combined with innovative research or technology, the total investment from Sarsia can, in time, reach 30–40 million NOK.
When we invest, we try our utmost to "get it right first time". This can only take place as a group effort between us and yout team. Working together, we map out a company's development plan, defining the company’s goals and creating a realistic plan for a profitable and sustainable business through a close, respectful collaboration with the company's management. We are active within the various companies in our portfolio, always retaining a position on the board. Our goal is to ensure best decisions being made on the path towards value inflecting milestones ultimately giving a profitable and sustainable business.
