We create, develop and digitize companies

Fram Skandinavien AB (publ) (“fram^“) is a Swedish-Vietnamese Venture Building & IT-development group with operations in broader South East Asia. fram^ was founded and built by passionate company builders and top talented engineers (the management of fram^ come from Kinnevik, Rocket Internet, McKinsey & Company, Ericsson, Lazada and Bima).

In order to expand and accelerate the Venture Building activities, our group IPO:ed on NASDAQ First North in Stockholm in October 2017 (Ticker FRAMB). What sets us apart from most other early-stage investors and company builders is our relentless focus on execution and profitability – we are firm believers that great early-stage companies do not have to sacrifice profitability for growth.

Against this background we are seeking hungry company builders to build new ventures from scratch one of the world’s fastest-growing regions – South East Asia, targeting a consumer population of ca. 650 million people. We are in the process of rolling out 12-15 ventures across fintech, edtech, insuretech and general consumer.

The role

We have established a methodology for company building where all our ventures must reach significant revenues within 6 months from launch and establish profitability within 24 months from launch. Prior to launch, each venture is researched in-depth and passes a rigorous investment committee.

fram^ currently has the following business models in its investment portfolio:

  • Carmudi Vietnam – leading car classified site in Vietnam (acquired from Rocket Internet in 2017)
  • SmartBuddy – price comparison website for finance and insurance products in Sri Lanka and Vietnam
  • Nordic Coder – coding academy equipping Vietnamese engineers with the necessary tools to conquer the international work environment
  • Eve HR – digital employment benefits venture in Vietnam utilizing group buying for employee retention
  • Lasluz – digital platform connecting the best tutors with students in Vietnam
  • DragonLend – venture specialized in providing unsecured loans to small companies typically excluded from the traditional lending
  • Bidbidi – an online bidding platform for second hand products in Vietnam
  • Wowmelo – an ecommerce “pay later” model that allows shoppers to pay with a 14 day invoice based on a credit assessment
  • Buildde – an online platform for home improvement products in Vietnam

Leveraging our unique mix of long track record of successful company building, our world-class inhouse IT-engineering talent pool, as well as the cost efficient landscape of South East Asia – we have established a proven platform for making our challenging targets materialize.

The management, board and investment committee of fram^ has over seven decades of joint experience of starting, growing and operating successful companies in emerging markets. Together we will be building the next digital industry leaders in the emerging economies of South East Asia!
