Jessica named top investor in Sweden

We are thrilled that Northzone Partner Jessica Schultz has been recognised as Sweden’s leading investor in the prestigious rankings of the most powerful women in Swedish enterprise by the business weekly Veckans Affärer.

The ranking is in its 21st year, and shines a spotlight on leaders across industries, including Board professionals, CEOs, entrepreneurs, investors, tech profiles, and change makers.

Jessica says: “It’s a great honour to be recognised among the many incredible women in Swedish business. And it’s of course very exciting to have Venture Capital reach the top spot in the investment category.”

Jessica’s investments include Red Points, Na-Kd, Matsmart, Klarna, Outfittery, Fyndiq and Lemoncat, and the founding teams of her companies are 40% female. “That’s still not good enough” comments Jessica, “but much better than when I was fundraising at HelloFresh.”
