EstVCA Managing Director Kadri Lindpere is very happy to have Swedbank join the PE/VC community: “For years, we have had great cooperation with the Swedbank Investment Funds team, who have been active members as Limited Partners and investors in our funds. Now having also Swedbank, the largest financial institution in Estonia join us, will definitely create further access for our investing members and their portfolio companies to the variety of services from the bank as well as brings new synergies in sustainable financing and impact investing.”

Allan Marnot, Head of Financial Institutions and Capital Markets Department: "Joining the EstVCA is a logical step for Swedbank, as Estonia's largest provider of fund services, and represents a strategic move to deepen our engagement and participation in Estonia's rapidly evolving investment landscape, also, being close to our current and future clients. We believe that our active involvement and collaboration with fellow EstVCA members will foster innovation, growth, and sustainability across Estonia's capital markets. It's our duty to support sustainable development and economic diversification, not only to our clients and shareholders but also to the broader economy and society."

Triin Preem, Start-Up Segment Manager: "In recent years, we at Swedbank have devoted more attention to the new economy and the startup landscape. Swedbank has supported the start-up community and investors in various ways: we are the co-founders of Prototron, we co-operate with sTARTUp Day and the Estonian Startup Awards. Alongside this, we aspire to expand our relationships with the investor community. We believe that establishing closer ties with EstVCA, in addition to our existing partners, lays a solid foundation for more meaningful collaboration in the future."
