Firda is an investment company founded by serial entrepreneur Geir Førre, after his 3 successful exits with Energy Micro, Chipcon and Prox Dynamics. Since 2015 Firda has been an active investor in Norwegian technology companies that are highly scalable and have a positive impact on the world.
Our purpose is to use our capital and entrepreneurial experience to empower Norwegian tech startups to become global leaders. We do this through our two investment mandates, Firda Active and Firda Seed.
Our portfolio companies share the passion for solving unsolved problems, the excitement of disrupting the market with new ways of doing things and the dream of creating something bigger than themselves.
Since 2006 we have exited 3 portfolio companies representing a total exit value of more than 3.5 billion NOK and listed one company on the Oslo stock exchange.
We are direct and expect the same brutal honesty from our portfolio companies. We are trustworthy and expect the same high standards from everyone we engage with. We are devoted and expect the same endurance from our entrepreneurs. We are committed to efforts addressing major global challenges.
We are supported by a very competent board of directors with a broad experience with technology companies from a variety of angels. Heidi has extensive experience from strategy and management consulting. Lars has lifelong business, executive and board level experience from several successful technology companies. Aksel is a former world athlete in alpine skiing and now full-time technology investor and partner in VC-fund and serving as board member and chair in several technology companies. Tellef has lifelong experience as Managing Partner in a leading tech VC-firm and serving as board member and chair of many technology companies. Martina & Ingrid have just started their journeys and have been blessed and cursed with their father’s hope for them to one day bring Firda forward in the next generation.
