We Build Business Champions

Vaaka Partners is a Finnish private equity firm that helps mid-sized companies become business champions.

We began in minority investing in 1989 and gradually shifted to buyout investing. In 2010, we became an independent private equity firm wholly owned by our management and focused on building growth through strategic and timely buyouts.

Today we build winning businesses by combining operational insight and new growth opportunities in a collaborative team environment.

Our board comprises a diverse group of partners and independent members.

The Vaaka factor

Our ambition is to be the #1 partner for entrepreneurs and mid-sized companies in our home markets. We offer all our companies:


Effective tools for developing high-performing management teams and companies


People with the experience and knowledge to help businesses grow sustainably in the global marketplace


Proactive collaboration built on integrity and transparency

Vaaka is the Finnish word for scale and a mythical giant eagle in the Kalevala, the Finnish national epic.

We are continuously looking for talent for our portfolio companies both for operational and non-executive roles. Please feel free to contact any member of our team to initiate a discussion.
