About Us

Our Story

Southwestern Ventures was founded as part of the Southwestern Family of Companies to create career and entrepreneurial opportunities for young people in Europe. We focus on elevating partners’ sales, in addition to starting and onboarding new businesses by leveraging the family of companies’ strong network of talented alumni.

The journey started in December 2018 when Jaak Roosaare, together with our CFO Madli Suitslepp, managed to create 80+ part-time positions in the first 12 months of operation and help several partners fundraise, in addition to G4S increasing fire safety by selling and installing connected COO detectors. 

We currently have four divisions: Finance, Insurance, Fundraising and Home Services. Headquartered in Tallinn, Estonia, we also do business in Latvia, Lithuania and Poland.

We focus on offering people inspiring careers in a youthful and growth-oriented environment.

Since 2021, Ventures has been led by Priit Märtin.
