  • Digital Venue, formerly Visitor Toolbox (Stockholm; SaaS solution for museums to visualize objects, collections, and history): SEK3.5M (€300K, $330K) in pre-seed funding from Marinvest, Grafo AS, Almi Invest, Sebastian Johannisson Mählqvist, and Khashayar Farmanbar. The company, in its previous iteration, was founded in 2015 or earlier, but relaunched as Digital Venue in 2023. The founders Erik Gullstrand, Daniel Lindberg and Christina Gidde Andersson aim to become European market leader before 2026 (Swedish / Breakit paywall).
  • Accumeo (Stockholm, investment and equity crowdfunding platform for unlisted companies, founded 2021): undisclosed amount from Guwijo Invest (Swedish, machine translation). Accumeo was founded by Oden Vallien, Markus Öberg and Hugo Friman, launched in November 2021, and has been mostly bootstrapped so far. I contacted co-founder Oden Vallien and asked whether this investment is part of a larger round.
