About Summa Equity

Summa Equity was founded in 2016 by an experienced group of people that have a long track record from investing in successful companies. The group was brought together by a shared view of the world and the economy, and a passion for developing companies that can outperform through providing products and services needed to meet the increasing demands and complexities our societies face.

We are thematically oriented investors with extensive experience from the markets that we focus on. We target proven companies where we see a significant potential to achieve strong growth through investments in technology, development of the organisation, new products and services, consolidation, or through internationalisation of the business. We focus on companies with strong niche positions operating in sectors that benefit from strong underlying megatrends. We are active in assisting our companies in creating strong financial value, whilst acting responsibly and contributing to a broader set of stakeholders.

Our team aims to be transparent and develop trust-based relationships, are passionate about continuous improvement and seek to disrupt, challenge and innovate, as well as strive to be fun and inspiring to work with. We care not only for our colleagues and portfolio companies, but also for our business partners, the environment, and for the communities we are a part of.
