At Peak, we are continuing our European expansion and are thrilled to announce that we’re opening our third European office in Stockholm, Sweden. We welcome Indra Sharma as Partner who will be leading the team in the Nordics. She will work together with Calin Fabri, Head of Nordics Sourcing, and both will be based in Stockholm.
Indra has extensive experience within the Nordic tech scene and joins from the Axel Johnson conglomerate’s investment arm where she led their Venture Capital efforts. Previous to that, she was responsible for EQT Ventures Nordic investments, and her portfolio includes companies such as Natural Cycles, Traplight, Einride and Lassie. Indra was also part of scaling Swedish Bambora Group into a fintech unicorn and leading their expansion into the DACH region.
Since her early youth, Indra has worked actively to promote a more inclusive society and feels very strongly about increasing women and minorities status in society. Indra is a published author of the book ‘Role models – the women that shape our future’ and is part of the advisory board of The Social Few.
Calin Fabri will lead the sourcing activities in the Nordics and has sourced and led investments such as Heja.io. He has a background within investment banking and was responsible for the expansion of Norwegian startup No Isolation. Starting October 1st, Calin Fabri will join Indra at the Stockholm office located at Norrsken House.
Johan van Mil, co-founder and Managing Partner at Peak: “After our two successful investments in the Swedish companies Heja and Precisely, we are very happy to offer more Nordic founders access to the truly entrepreneurial platform Peak offers. We also welcome Indra Sharma to our team and her vast expertise in the Nordic tech scene. Having a team with local presence in the Nordics is part of our core since we strongly believe in staying close to founders and supporting with both international and local knowledge.”
Indra Sharma, Partner at Peak: “Joining Peak was an easy decision, we’re all about team and together with Calin Fabri, I’m looking forward to introducing Nordic founders to Peak and supporting early stage founders in building the companies of tomorrow.”
