Our origin – Vikings in the water
A sunstone is a gemstone that was used by the seafaring Vikings a thousand years ago as a navigational instrument to explore the world and find their way home again. Although probably not aware of it, the Nordic explorers and warriors were actually using advanced technology (downward wavelength conversion) to open up new markets and create new opportunities.
At Sunstone, we work with our companies to conquer the world and help them pave the road for a safe and prosperous return for our investors.
