Estonian-German female-founded startup Grünfin on Thursday announced the launch of its investment platform focused on sustainable, values-based investments, for European consumers. Additionally, the company has also raised €2M in a fresh round of funding for the launch.
The round was led by Norrsken VC, one of Europe’s largest impact tech funds founded by Klarna co-founder Niklas Adalberth. Other investors in this round include Superangel, Lemonade Stand and a number of angel investors with backgrounds in Wise, Pipedrive, Skype, and Wire.
Tove Larsson, General Partner at Norrsken VC, says, “Shifting your savings to sustainable assets is one of the most important choices you can make in your life to enable a sustainable future for the world. That is why we are extremely happy to partner with the experienced and mission-driven team of Grünfin to drive more capital to impact.”
“Help your money make a difference”
Grünfin was founded by two mothers, Karin Nemec and Triin Hertmann. As parents, they shared a common concern – ensuring a sustainable future for the next generation. They felt the lack of impact-driven investing platforms that are sophisticated yet easy enough for beginners. And this is what gave birth to Grünfin.
