About this event

The Nordics are a startup powerhouse, from the music-minded Spotify to fintech giant Klarna, oat milk brand Oatly and battery developer Northvolt.

To dig deeper into the Nordic startup scene, we welcome you to our fireside chat with Mimi Billing, Nordic Correspondent from Sifted that stands for in-depth reporting on startup Europe, backed by the Financial Times.

Here's what we are discussing:

⭐️ What's hot - oven fresh - in the Nordic space these days? 

⭐️ What drives innovation per-capita in this region?

⭐️ What makes the startup ecosystem unique?

⭐️ How does the region fare against the rest of Europe?

⭐️ How are the present winds of change in the VC space impacting Nordics?

⭐️ As a startup in the Nordics, can you follow a tried-and-tested unicorn-formula for success?

⭐️ How do you, as a startup or a founder, get on the attention radar of startup media?

The discussion will be moderated by Naimul Abd, Business Advisor & Partnerships Lead at Coompanion Stockholm, serial impact entrepreneur, Regional Director Nordics at the Founder Institute, and Director Startup Grind Stockholm.
