For the first time, the 50 most promising Nordic companies were showcased at the Nordic Venture Forum
In the 6th edition, Europe Unlimited showcased the Nordics most promising entrepreneurs from Life Sciences, Cleantech and Information & Communication Technologies to an audience of Nordic and international venture capital and corporate investors and strategic partners. The Nordic Venture Forum contributes to this development of high-tech and innovative companies throughout the region by introducing them to active international investors, corporations and advisors. Impact studies of the Forum results over the years show that 58% of the presenting companies managed to raise new investments following the event!
The NVF allowed the most promising life science, clean technology and information technology entrepreneurs from the Nordics region to meet and present themselves to active international investors and corporations seeking investment and partnerships. The Forum plays an active role in the European and Nordic innovation scene. It fosters start-ups and high-tech, high-growth entrepreneurship and it promotes Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Iceland as innovative, attractive and rewarding countries to do business in or to invest in.
