We are excited to welcome Rebecka Löthman Rydå to the investment team. Rebecka was most recently at venture capital firm Zenith Group where, as Investment Manager, she focused on a variety of technology companies including those within B2B, SaaS and machine learning.
“Our role as investors is greater than just numbers and returns, it includes pushing social progress forward in the right direction. Rebecka is both a master of the investment craft and is passionate about the companies we help build,” says David Sonnek, CEO at Industrifonden.
Rebecka’s experience is vast. For the last six years Rebceka has worked with investments in entrepreneur-lead growth companies, first at venture capital firm Varenne and later at newly started Zenith Group, where she was responsible for some of the fund’s first investments. Rebecka started as CFO at Varenne and then transitioned to interim CEO. Rebecka also has a background as an accountant at Ernst & Young.
“Building successful and sustainable businesses takes time – usually longer than one first imagines. Perseverance, drive and a lot of stubbornness are key, not just for entrepreneurs but also for investors. That makes Industrifonden unique with its long-term perspective, role and focus, and it’s definitely the most exciting place to be for an investor to make a real long lasting impact,” says Rebecka Löthman, Investment Manager at Industrifonden.
