We apply a private equity mindset to listed companies




The NEA Public Value approach

NEA Public Value applies a private equity approach to listed companies by building significant influential positions in Nordic nano/micro/small-cap companies with market capitalization up to SEK 1bn. Additionally, the fund can invest in pre-IPOs.

NEA PV invests in high-quality companies which are considered undervalued compared to their inherent value creation potential.

NEA PV’s primary investment approach is to identify active entrepreneurs in companies with a long runway for growth and to support them with capital and the NEA network.
