About Stella Capital

Anders Brenner founded Stella Capital in 2015 together with the partners of Stella EOC – a corporate finance firm later acquired first by GCA Altium and then by the international investment bank Houlihan Lokey.

The investment structure is supported by private capital from the founding team as well as a group of well-known Nordic entrepreneurs, HNWIs and Family Offices.

We are an evergreen structure with flexible mandate allowing for best possible outcomes for LPs and portfolio companies.
