THE NORDIC OPPORTUNITY FOR VENTURE CAPITAL INVESTORS

Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Finland (the Nordic region) offers distinct opportunities for Venture Capital (VC) Investors.


The Nordic countries have a long-standing history of originating global and world-class companies - which continue today with Unicorns such as Klarna, Spotify, Northvolt, Zendesk and others.


The reasons for a VC investor to take an in-depth look at the Nordics, include:

  • The Nordics, as a region, is on a par with France and Israel (# Unicorns), yet less crowded (# VC investors),

  • Ranks high in global and European comparisons of startup ecosystems as well as technical and innovation capabilities,

  • Investor infrastructure is in place and the region has a history of successful VC-investments,

  • A history of applying world-class research to develop cutting-edge world-class solutions and companies.
