Vo2 Cap AB was formed with the goal of building a leading Nordic group of companies active in tech and media. The business model consists of acquiring and refining entrepreneurial companies with a proven business model and which show historical growth and profitability, but which have challenges in taking their growth to the next step. By gathering tech / media companies under one umbrella and taking advantage of synergies, knowledge and networks within the Vo2 Group, we create opportunities both to develop the individual companies within Vo2, and to strengthen the Group's accumulated position in the market. With the intended listing, Vo2 is given, through a broadened circle of owners and liquid shares, an attractive platform that makes it possible to realize our vision and goals.
