Swedfund International AB
Swedfund is a risk capital company that provides capital and know-how for in- vestments in developing countries and in Central and Eastern Europe primarily in partnership with Swedish companies. Swedfund is owned by the Swedish State.
Swedfund invests in projects that it considers potentially profitable. These pro- jects may involve setting up in new markets or expanding existing businesses. Generally, collaboration takes the form of a joint venture company formed by a Swedish company and its local partner in the host country, for example Poland, with both parties contributing capital.
At the end of 2003 Swedfund had only invested in 1 project in Poland. This was in 1994 with the partner Nordiska Ekofiber.
