About Us


Constant Innovation is a venture studio founded and run by siblings Deborah and Donnie Lygonis together with Stephen Bracegirdle. We have been active on the Nordic startup scene since 1995 when we founded our first startup; children’s game publisher Romelix Interactive. Since then we have founded, supported and invested in more than 50 startups. As Senior Project Managers and Business Developers we have been part of major industrial projects all over Europe.

Today we focus our efforts on projects connected to social good and sustainability.

We are part of the Nordic Ignite Business Angel Network that supports early-stage companies (pre-seed) in the Nordics and Baltics.
