Tera Ventures backs ambitious founders and their compelling visions at seed stage

Tera Ventures is an Estonian venture capital firm investing in early stage born-global digital startups. Our goal is to discover world class founders tackling big problems and support them on the way to become the industry leaders. Estonia is our home market, we also invest in Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Czech Republic. We have offices in Tallinn, Estonia; Los Angeles, California; and Helsinki, Finland.

We are industry agnostic, we do have preferences based on what we have learned from our portfolio companies – eg we like Fintech, automation. We also develop themes – eg we have invested in AI/ML for more than ten years.

We are hands-on and founder-friendly, our goal is also to support portfolio companies across the early rounds with our follow-on investments. Over more than a decade, Tera team has had considerable success in assisting portfolio companies’ entry to the US, the UK and Japan, facilitating collaboration with international corporations, and raising additional capital from top-tier VCs.
