We join high tech pre-seed and seed stage companies
See our startups
Yes, we join for 1-3 days/week. That’s because it’s more fun and we believe startups do better if they have an experienced entrepreneur on the team; not just someone to talk to in meetings or eat lunch with occasionally.
"Jane was there for us and on my side. She was in the trenches with us when it was tough, including her and Caroline packing orders in the basement. I could bounce ideas about anything in the firm with her."
"We were extremely fortunate to meet Jane Walerud. We were a bit surprised that she gave us more money than we had asked for, and for less of the company."
"As CEO and cofounder, Caroline set up the business side and built our early team. She invested 1MSEK to tide us through to our seed round and raised $5M in funding."
"Jane worked part time at Satcube. She's (wo)manned our first tradeshow stand, found CFO/COO recruits. Bengt has been an important catalyst around pricing strategy."
"Bengt helped us find our first business person. He has been crucial in defining our business model and our optimal pricing."
"Jane is one of the unsung heroines of the Erlang story. She knew all sorts of things like how to start a company, how to raise venture capital, how to write a contract, how to sell software. Things that we knew nothing about. Within 18 months we sold the company for $150M."
"Besides the excellent reputation, the investment module of Walerud Ventures makes it unique and attractive. Waleruds invest more than cash! They invest experience, time, networking and much more. We are glad to have Jane as the Chairperson of the board and operatively contributing to strategy building, business creation for GraphMaTech."
