What do we mean by "investing off the beaten track"? Well today most investments made by angel investors, private equity or venture capital, is distributed to larger urban areas. Naturally due to everything that a city can offer in terms of available talent pool, supplier ecosystem, professional networks and infrastructure. But it does not create equal opportunities between city and countryside.
At Kuorrokveik Adventure Capital we strongly believe that there should be equally large opportunities for startups in rural areas to grow on a regional, a national or even a global arena. We know that brilliant ideas are out there and we are convinced that the combination of equity, network and coaching is the recipe to carry those ideas to become viable businesses and begin stellar growth journeys.
Believe in the countryside
At Kuorrokveik Adventure Capital we strongly believe that there are large opportunities for startups in rural communities to grow on a regional, a national and even to a global arena.
The areas where inventions are happening in are closely linked to the challenges entrepreneurs sees to overcome in their home communities and where those solutions has the potential to change the way of life for many.
We want to support startups from the countryside with funding and expertise to be allowed to receive equal opportunities to grow. Digital mobility and e-commerce are the fundamental enablers.
Surf tectonic shifts
In industry after industry incumbents are being challenged by smaller and more agile companies with a niche agenda.
There are tectonic shifts occurring in Fintech, MedTech, AgTech, AdTech and CleanTech to name a few. There are also trends changing hospitality, F&B and the FMCG industry.
Tech companies are setting a new standard how to attract and retain employees. The Millennial generation are choosing their employer based on brand strength and this will fundamentally change the way recruitment is being made.
Kuorrokveik Adventure Capital provides seed funding to business that has the potential to ride the waves of these tectonic shifts.
“The first lesson of economics is scarcity: there is never enough of anything to fully satisfy all those who want it”
-Thomas Sowell, American economist
We believe that there are avenues for value creation of things. It also gives us the thrill of investing in objects we truly love and enjoy ourselves.
