By being a part of their portfolio you'll gain access to their immense network of experienced people who are willing and able to fast-track your company for success.

Track Record

Not only is Coop known for being one of the most popular retail chains in Denmark with their 40% market share, but they have a long track record of supporting early startups with their crowdfunding environment.

Coop Invest is an A/S, which is owned 100% by Coop Amba and thus by all Coop members. The excess capital that is not to be used immediately in the group's operating companies (Coop Danmark, Coop amba, and Coop Bank) is forwarded to Coop Invest.
