Willebrand Invest AB was founded in 2011 by Stefan Willebrand, to act as an equity partner for small start-up companies where capital and knowledge are required. Willebrand Invest intends to act globally but with local roots where the company has found a niche among companies that need between 500,000 - 5 million SEK in capital to transform an idea into a booming business. Founder and CEO Stefan Willebrand has long been active in financial technology, asset management and financial services and is now active in several businesses. Through its wholly owned subsidiaries Willebrand Group AB incubates his early ideas together with external partners to test whether these could be viable. When the business concept has proven themselves these companies are introduced to Willebrand Invest forming a firm foundation for the next phase of development.
