Icebreaker.vc is a 20M€ venture capital fund and community. We are on a mission to help build strong tech companies and our goal is to become the best in the world. If you feel compelled to our mission, you might just be the right person to join our team at Icebreaker.vc!
We launched in early 2017. As of today, we have built a community of hundreds of Founders and Pre-Founders, and invested in 38 strong tech companies. The Icebreaker Community brings together hundreds of experienced and entrepreneurial minded people via events, lottery lunches and our own Intranet. Our members rate the community highly (80% would recommend it to their friends) and we’ve facilitated over 1000 new, relevant connections on a quarterly basis. Our portfolio companies are solving difficult, global problems and they have developed superior products that the markets are craving for. As a result, the revenue of these companies is growing fast and they are raising millions of euros from the best VCs around the world.
We are at the intersection of launching our next fund, which will be bigger, stronger, and eventually, better...
At the moment we are a team of 14. Our founders are Lasse, Aleksi, Riku and Teddie. Our background is in strong tech companies and venture capital. We have strengthened our investment and expert teams with Leo, Slobodan, Mari, Jukka, Kristian, Rasmus, Pauli, Akseli, and Anni. Finally, we have Mikko-Jussi as our Chairperson of the Board.
We are young and hungry. We want to change the way VCs do business and that requires out-of-the-box thinking. That’s why we consider ourselves more like a startup than a VC.
We also want to add the Icebreaker Salt to everything we do. Essentially this is a quirky mixture of professionalism, perfectionism and creativeness with a twist of good laughs. You have to see it to believe it!
We want to push our limits and constantly strive to be better at what we do. The only way to achieve this is through growth, so that’s what we are looking to do next. Be bigger, stronger and eventually better. In practice, this means growing our community 10x, organizing higher quality events to better facilitate relevant connections, find and invest into better companies, launch our international operations, and better support our portfolio companies to have them reach bigger next investment rounds faster. Although we are big believers in automation, we won’t be able to do all of this without additional people in the team. Thus we are looking to hire diverse talent into new roles to help us all become better at what we do.
