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.

The Vaaka factor

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


Tools for developing high-performing management teams and companies


People with knowledge of and experience in growing businesses in the global marketplace


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.

Career opportunities

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.
