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 has spent the last 20 years working in the technology sector as a founder, advisor, board member, and investor. As a Founding Partner of Concentric, the London & Copenhagen-based venture capital firm, he works with early-stage tech businesses to support their development and accelerate growth.

Current investments include Homehero, Houst, Huckletree, Hussle, Pockit, Public.io, Superscript, Insly, Memory.ai and Wiredirect. He takes a hands-on, founder focused approach to start-up investment and is passionate about increasing the profile of the European VC sector amongst family offices and institutional investors worldwide.

Prior to Concentric, he co-founded the venture fund DN Capital and the merchant bank Korral Partners and has been instrumental in 100+ transactions over the course of my career, as both investor and advisor.
