EQT Foundation

Pushing the Frontiers of Impact

The EQT Foundation was established in 2019 to act as a long-term steward of EQT’s values and drive EQT’s global philanthropic activities. The foundation supports impact entrepreneurs and the global movement on impact investing.

Purpose

EQT Foundation is closely connected to and aligned with the values, thematic investment expertise, and entrepreneurial spirit of EQT, and supports early-stage solutions that will contribute to a more inclusive and cooler tomorrow.

EQT Foundation is structurally independent from EQT and is managed by the EQT Foundation’s Members’ Committee, a setup created to maintain the partnership feeling after the public listing. EQT employees with a deep and long-term commitment in EQT, may be invited to become members of this committee, as part of their career development at EQT.

The EQT Foundation holds around one percent of the shares in EQT AB and has a right to appoint a member of the nomination committee of EQT AB, acting as an eternal steward of the EQT culture and values.

Partnering with impact entrepreneurs
EQT Foundation supports early-stage ventures and non-profit organizations, enabling impact entrepreneurship, leveraging EQT's digital expertise and AI platform Motherbrain to source entrepreneurs from across the world. EQT Foundation aims to find and elevate vital innovations by crowding in other investments from its network.

When deciding which entrepreneurs to support, EQT Foundation evaluates:

1. The potential of having a significant positive impact towards building a more inclusive and cooler tomorrow

2. A proposed or developed disruptive solution, rather than a marginal improvement of an existing process

3. An area or sector where EQT's expertise and Network can be leveraged to help the entrepreneur succeed
