”We provide the funding, knowledge and network that projects need to grow”
Stephan Christgau, Investment Director, Novo Seeds
Helping seeds grow
Our pre-seed grants and seed investments provide scientific and commercial support to promising early-stage life science projects in Scandinavia.
Our pre-seed grants
Our pre-seed grants support early-stage applied ground-breaking research that shows commercial potential. These grants are awarded on behalf of the Novo Nordisk Foundation and given to researchers at universities or medical staff at hospitals with the aim to mature the project for a seed investment.
Our seed programme
Our seed investments focus on building companies from innovative science that can attract additional venture capital and build value through exits.
Unlike the pre-seed grant, our seed investments operate on commercial terms. Our investment is made in return for ownership.
