Do you know a good company for the Viking Venture family?
Tip us about a Nordic B2B software company and you can get a finder’s fee of 25.000 EUR.
What do we look for?
We love to work with founders and managers passionate about their software business. The best match for us is B2B software companies with differentiated products that support work processes for their customers. Preferably with revenue above 3 MEUR.
We are especially interested in situations where we could be relevant. This could for instance be if you know that the company is currently looking for a partner to help them scale, or if you know some or more shareholders in the company are considering selling their shares.
You need to know a relevant person in the company we can contact, either an employee, a board member and/or a shareholder.
How it works
You tip us about a relevant company
A Nordic B2B software company supporting work processes. You know a relevant contact person in the company.
We review and accept or reject the tip
We verify the relevancy of the company, timing and contact person. In addition, we check that we are not in contact already.
You get 25.000 EUR in finder’s fee at closing
We need to accept the tip and invest in the company within 12 months for finder’s fee to be paid. If someone already tipped about the company, you receive a bottle of champagne.
