Our report reveals a continued growth in invested capital for the Swedish tech sector in the first six months of 2017. While the number of deals kept steady, the amount of capital increased following a surge of larger Series A and B rounds. Noteworthy is that the share of funding rounds with participation from international investors hit an all time low, pointing to a strong appetite from domestic investors.
So far in 2017 domestic investors have remained crucial to the ecosystem, as the most active investors across all stages were domestic. Top backers included Industrifonden, Northzone, Almi Invest and Wellstreet.
