Scania launches Scania Growth Capital for investments in high-growth companies with strategic relevance to its ecosystem in the transport- and automotive industries.

This initiative reaches a segment of companies which complement Scania. It’s an opportunity to tap into early development and innovation that is industry-relevant, but outside its own core operations. It also provides a platform where Scania can contribute with a large ecosystem, as well as broad and deep industry knowledge, which will add great value to the portfolio companies. Scania Growth Capital evaluate investment proposals broadly. They may include, but are not limited to, companies with products, solutions or services in digitalisation, autonomous vehicles, connectivity, hybridisation, renewable fuels and smart factories.
