Veikko Maripuu has extensive experience in the investment, banking, financial and M&A areas, and as an entrepreneur, having worked on the largest international equity offerings and management of various asset classes in the region ever since the early 1990s.
Veikko gained his first experience back in the 90s from several banks, where he advised and supported companies that wanted to deal and conduct transactions with businesses between the East and the West, and gained good knowledge on Nordic, pan-European and Eastern European capital and investment markets.
He joined Suprema Securities, a leading Baltic investment bank in 1997 with a brief to run international capital market sales, trading, and research. Further on, since 2002, Veikko focused on building highly committed asset, fund management, private banking and institutional investment management business until 2008.
In 2008, Veikko was one of the two founding senior partners behind the launch of an investment and financial advisory company, Redgate Capital, where he continued to build an investment portfolio of established and early stage companies. As a part of further focus strategy, Redgate was split into two organizations in 2016. Veikko is currently the CEO and managing partner of Head Capital, effectively a former investment group of Redgate, focusing on investments into early stage, expanding and established companies, and helping them grow in the new environment. Head Capital is also building a platform to enhance entrepreneurial and financial literacy, especially to kids and students of different ages.
