Superhero Capital, an early-stage venture capital firm based in Helsinki announced the first close of its second fund at €30M.

“There has been a lot of talk about data being the new oil. But how much is data worth before it is refined into actionable insight? We look for startups that focus on that next step from data to insight,” says Jakob Storå, Partner at Superhero Capital. “We have been investing in insight-driven startups such as Leadfeeder and Zadaa since the launch of our first fund in 2015. There are insight-driven startups in many different industries, but they have a common approach to creating value.”
