Kjartan Rist
I believe that an activist approach to venture investing is the best way to build a strong portfolio and deliver outsized returns. That means I actively support all our portfolio companies throughout their life cycle, don't mind getting my hands dirty, and get involved wherever I can be useful.
Kjartan Rist, Family Office Venture Capital
