Pale blue dot (Pbd), a Swedish VC firm with also some Finnish background, has closed its second fund at the size of EUR 93 million. It will invest in seed and early-stage tech companies mainly in Northern Europe.
Pbd specialises in impact investments that promote sustainable development. Responsibility and impact are therefore the base of operations for the firm.
”There is a lack in Northern Europe but especially in Finland of an early-stage investor that focuses both on climate tech and on investments targeting even the early founding moments of a company. Since in Pale blue dot both these strategies meet, we have decided to continue supporting them into their second fund. The fund will be screening also Finland for world-class climate tech prospects and entrepreneurs,” comments Matias Kaila, the Director of Tesi’s Fund Investments team.
Tesi has also invested in Pbd’s first fund in 2021.
