Metsä Spring Ltd. is part of Metsä Group, an leading actor in the forest-based bioeconomy, with a history reaching back to the 1930s. As any company today, Metsä Group is part of various value chains and a specific business ecosystem. Metsä Spring’s role is to seek and develop new business ideas that would further develop this ecosystem. In practise, Metsä Spring provides strategic equity financing from its own balance sheet. Metsä Spring can also participate, for instance, in collaboration schemes on a project basis, but in all models, Metsä Spring is not looking to engage in early-phase R&D. The focus is rather on the last stretch, which would, if successfully implemented, result in a ‘proof-of-concept’ of the business idea.
Metsä Spring is a new player in this field. We together with our current network have vast expertise, but within limited areas. To broaden the innovation landscape, we would like to find partners. The kind that value co-creation and the fact that a good team is a mix of different traits. Mutual trust and respect within the team is the backbone of our way of thinking.
We invest expertise and financial resources into initiatives with the ambition to reshape the forest-based bioeconomy, thus increasing the value for Metsä Group’s stakeholders in the long-term.
Our vision is to become the preferred partner in the development of new business opportunities within the forest-based bioeconomy and circular economy.
