Propel Capital was founded in 2014 by Sting and is today Sweden’s most active private seed investor. Propel Capital takes advantage of Sting’s dealflow and selection process and the portfolio companies gain access to business development support and finance coaching, recruitment, networks and other resources of Sting.
Propel Capital gathers experienced business angels in an exclusive network that provides opportunities for investors to make direct investments in the portfolio companies before other investor groups. Propel Capital is also an attractive platform for finding syndication partners and sharing experiences with other investors in Propel Capital.
State-owned Saminvest has invested in Propel Capital IV and also offers experienced investors in Propel Capital the opportunity to get a co-investment agreement with them, where Saminvest matches selected investors’ direct investments in Propel Capital’s portfolio companies with the same amount at favorable terms for the business angel. Propel Capital is one of the first business angel companies in Sweden to obtain a joint investment agreement with Saminvest.
