History

Neqst was founded in 2008 by Erik Fröberg and Jonas Fredriksson with financial backing by Öhman. Since the 1980’s, Erik and Jonas have managed, advised and invested in technology and technology-enabled companies worldwide. Öhman is a family-owned financial services firm founded in Stockholm in 1906.

When the founders joined forces, it was to address what they saw as a gap in the Nordic technology sector. Their experience told them that the Nordic technology industry was strong, but that good companies often struggled to achieve growth, particularly internationally. They also saw that many of the firms investing in technology companies lacked the hands-on experience necessary to add value to the investments.

Neqst’s goal is to provide a context including both competence and capital, in which companies with promising business models can reach their full growth and profitability potential.  With its strong team and long-term investors, Neqst is well positioned to offer this context.
