Join our team
We hire creative thinkers with a pragmatic business mind and an entrepreneurial spirit.
Our team is united by four core values
We dare to be different
We are bold in our thinking and challenge the status quo. We treasure differences of opinion and value complementary perspectives as we seek creative solutions to complex problems.
We love what we do
We are genuinely committed and passionately curious, entrepreneurial in spirit and deed – the best idea wins.
We get things done
We actively work to shorten decision-making cycles and prioritise what lies before us in order to ensure that everything we set out to accomplish is done well, rather than taking on too many things at once.
We respect people and the planet
We act with integrity and seek to build trust in all relations. We show responsibility and aspire to be on the right side of history, helping to move our industry towards more sustainable, long-term thinking.
Our roots go back to Four Seasons Venture (“Four Seasons”), founded in Oslo by Birger Nergaard in 1985 and joined by Gunnar Rydning in 1986. The firm raised three funds between 1986 and 2000, pursuing an early stage direct investment strategy in the ICT sector.
Bjarne Kveim Lie joined Four Seasons in 2001. Recognising the need to scale and to move the focus towards more mature growth assets, he and Thomas Falck drove the acquisition of a portfolio of 96 growth companies from the Norwegian government in 2003. A new fund, initially called Four Seasons Venture IV (later Verdane Capital IV), was raised to finance the transaction. The team spun out of Four Seasons Venture into a separately managed advisory firm, that became the starting point for what is today known as Verdane.
