Profile

Who are we?:Sealand Capital A/S is an investment company based in Copenhagen. We have invested in a number of companies, one of which is Needit ApS the creator of the best-selling electronic parking disc ParkOne. Sealand Capital A/S was founded in 2008.

We offer: A unique 3-step incubation programme to qualifying IoT startups.

What we look for: Your IoT startup should address a large international market and the founding team must be strong, dedicated and ambitious. The founding team must be able and willing to re-locate to Copenhagen and commit a 100% work effort for the duration of the programme. The nature of your business should combine hardware with software on some level - this is our basic understanding of IoT - we expect you to share our enthusiasm for IoT and understand how this space potentially can transform everyday life for everyday people.

What we offer: Capital, mentor network, business modelling, go-to-market execution, office space, 3D-printing, product design support (hardware and software) and administrative services.

 

 

Incubation philosophy

We believe the best way to create value is to be active! So we work with you, support you, challenge you, share ups and downs and hopefully reach a successful conclusion in the end of the journey. We believe in using external agents and mentors when we feel on 'thin ice' ourselves. We finance your start-up via mile-stone based trances.

  • “The IoT is big news because it ups the ante: ‘Reach out and touch somebody’ is becoming ‘reach out and touch everything’.”
    Parker Trewin, Senior Director of Content and Communications, Aria Systems
  • “If you think that the internet has changed your life, think again. The IoT is about to change it all over again!”
    Brendan O’Brien, Chief Architect & Co-Founder, Aria Systems
  • “The IoT is removing mundane repetitive tasks or creating things that just weren’t possible before, enabling more people to do more rewarding tasks and leaving the machines to do the repetitive jobs.”
    Grant Notman, Head of Sales and Marketing, Wood & Douglas
