It all began in 1985 with Lars Wiklund founding his first company within the Swedish financial sector. Subsequently, Lars started investing minority shares in unlisted companies, and in 1995 Linbo Invest was born. The rest, as they say, is history.
Since its inception, Linbo Invest has made over 30 investments in a wide variety of sectors and at different growth stages (see Investments for more information). On top of these, a number of companies have been co-founded and actively supported at all stages of growth and development.

We acknowledge that no one knows everything. At the same time, great things happen when we pool different skill sets. Over the years we have built a solid network of industry specialists that we draw on based on the particular case at hand. In this way, the companies we invest in can reap the rewards of a unique blend of people who are leaders in their field of business.
Our belief in collaboration means that we will happily include additional investors: people we believe have the capacity to contribute to and benefit from the successful advancement of growth companies.
