Private Equity: The Swedish tech industry is on the rise and we find that companies backed by Swedish private equity experience a large increase in productivity and growth.
Stockholm is an international hub for private equity. With the city also being highly attractive towards tech companies and startups to touch-base with the Nordic markets, more investment opportunities are being created on an almost daily basis.
This is why Main Capital Partners decided to serve the Nordic market by opening up our first office here in Stockholm, right in the center of the financial district.

We’ve been in the strategic investment business long enough to have seen the different perspectives and multiple industry shifts that have defined modern private investment.
Private equity investment can get very technical. However, these investment funds can help propel your business towards realizing its strategic objectives and mature in their respected sector.
So, how do we go about the process of securing a private equity investment fund?
To invest in a company, a private equity firm will acquire pools of capital from limited partners to create the fund. Once the fundraising goals have been met, the fund is closed and the capital is invested in the company in question.
In some cases, private equity-supported companies may also go public if their status grows to significantly support this move. However, the term “private investment” means that a non-public equity investment company will directly invest in a business or engage in the buyout of said business.
Sweden is a leading country when it comes to private equity, housing some of the most specialized private equity firms in Europe. As such, the Swedish private equity sector has a great deal of opportunities in becoming a source of export income by generating interest for international capital, and invest in firms at an international level.
Measured as a share of GDP, the amount of private equity capital raised in Sweden is among the largest in the EU. Around one third of this capital goes to companies located in other European countries, making Stockholm a private equity hub supporting high-potential companies across the Nordic region.
Private equity also creates value as a highly attractive form of asset management for other institutional investors. In recent years, private equity investments have become more popular as a long-term, stable and high-return alternative investment type. In fact, European private equity funds have consistently outperformed comparable indices of listed companies.
