Exit of the Year

We’re thrilled to have won the ‘Exit of the Year’ award at this year’s Norwegian Investment Forum for our exit of Enery Micro.

Norwegian Investment Forum is the largest venture conference in Norway and attended by the leading figures in the Norwegian investment community. This is where Nordic investors to share information and know-how about prospects, trends and key issues, especially pertaining to the Norwegian market.

Norwegian Investment Forum in cooperation with NVCA institutionalizes an annual award to the most important players in the Norwegian venture capital. Each year six winners are announced within categories of: “The Selmer Award – Best Start-up Company 2013”, “VC Fund of the Year”, “Seed fund of the Year”, “Exit of the Year”, “Investor of the Year”, and “Service Provider of the Year”.

This year our exit of Energy Micro to US-based Silicon Labs for $115 million won us the ‘Exit of the Year’ award. This success story is great news for the entire Norwegian tech community, and we look forward to supporting more great entrepreneurs with their exciting ventures.
