Strahl Capital's homebase is Oslo, Norway. Surrounded by fjords, hills, and forests, and with easy access to the mountains, Oslo is a vibrant tech scene fuelled by talent, fun, and funding.
Our ambition is to contribute to true environmental and social impact by providing backing to startups and scaleups with the same ambitions as us. Our minds are quite open, however we value the following:
- a strong and dedicated team, addressing a significant problem, with a potentially international market, applying the very latest technology
Teams we invest in are usually located in Europe. Our role is typically to provide funding and advice on structure, set-up, and go-to-market alternatives, without interfering with the daily doings of the team. We like to engage with the teams, however we do not take lead.
