Growth opportunities ahead of us.

that has shown strong growth with a highly skilled management and
organization. We are impressed by the ircompetence and the industrial platform they have built.

Norvestor”, says Christian Sontum, Partner at Norvestor Equity and Chairman designate in NetNordic Holding.

“NetNordic has been a very special and successful journey for us since we entered as a venture investor back in 2007 when the company was fairly young.
