Hard thing about hard things
In the history of Livonia Partners, 2021 was one that probably provided the most learning. We made fewer investments than in previous years, yet we learnt important lessons working with our portfolio, our investors, and with our team. At times we took some steps back in order to take more steps forward.

Ahead of Livonia Partners next fund

Why we invested in Thermory
Thermory’s journey was one with multiple twists and turns. We initially invested in Ha Serv in February 2016 when it was a single-entrepreneur company in the wood processing sector, an industry with long traditions and multiple successes in the Baltics. Our original conviction was to invest in market leadership, strong cash flow and management talent.
