At Pfizer, we apply science and our global resources to bring therapies to people that extend and significantly improve their lives. We strive to set the standard for quality, safety and value in the discovery, development, and manufacture of healthcare products. Our global portfolio includes medicines and vaccines as well as many of the world's best-known consumer healthcare products.


Inventure is a Nordic technology fund backing early-stage entrepreneurs. Having its roots in Finland, Inventure team enjoys domains many don’t feel comfortable with and makes big bets on deep tech. The strong capital base allows Inventure to lead investments starting from initial seed-stage all the way through the expansion.


We believe there’s more to gain by working together than doing it alone and starting from scratch. We offer uplifting solutions to business problems by helping leading start-ups and enterprises to work together. We’re not a Startup accelerator. Nor are we a traditional business consultancy. We look at improvement via addition. That’s why we’ve created a new term for what we are, the world’s first business augmentor.

Looking forward to meeting you in Helsinki!
Pfizer, Vertical, and Inventure teams
