S7 launched in May 2021 when founder Rick Wheatley, Reynir Indahl and the team at Summa Equity, a leading ESG-oriented private equity firm, partnered to develop a leadership accelerator for Summa's portfolio.

 

With over 14 billion Swedish kroner under management, the Summa portfolio includes companies such as Norsk Gjenvinning, a Nordic leader in circularity; Olink, a groundbreaking Swedish company advancing precision medicine; and Holdbart, Norway´s leading food surplus retailer.

 

What we love about Summa is its ambition: to scale companies that matter. The companies in Summa's portfolio compete by solving real problems, from eliminating the very concept of waste to making a reality of patient-centered healthcare.

 

The accelerator S7 is helping to build and run will support the leaders of the portfolio companies as they rise to meet the challenges of scaling small- and mid-sized businesses. We are excited about this project because we feel it is tackling one of the main barriers to the emergence of an equitable, zero-emissions economy – that is, the fact that the bulk of ESG-led businesses are small. We need bigger players on the pitch to tip the balance of the economy away from companies with business models that by definition harm the environment and society.
