SEB Greentech is a new unit within SEB that will invest venture capital in green technology, a sector that is undergoing rapid development and will play a key role in the transition to a more sustainable society. Given that there is a shortage of venture capital in this sector, as investments in new, green technology often take a longer time to develop and mature than traditional venture-capital investments, SEB has created SEB Greentech to support the transition to a more sustainable society.
The unit will invest in Nordic companies that develop solutions which in a decisive way can improve the use of natural resources and reduce negative ecological impacts, for example investments in renewable energy, energy storage, water and agricultural technology, circular business models and waste management.
SEB Greentech will be headed by Markus Hökfelt, who is currently Fund Manager for Almi Invest’s GreenTech fund, and assumes his new position at SEB on 1 November. On this page, we will provide further information about SEB Greentech once the unit is up and running.
