On Sunday September 3rd, VC collective Nordic Makers and startup hub SUP46 are co-hosting a day for selected international investors to showcase 14 Nordic high-growth, soon-to-raise series A, startups.
While Sthlm Tech Fest officially begins on Monday September 4th, its VIP party takes place on the Sunday. However, prior to the VIP party, international investors are gathering to meet the rising stars from the Nordic countries. Nordic Makers, the investment vehicle of entrepreneurs-turned investors that have built some of the largest tech companies having come out of the Nordics, and SUP46, Nordic’s leading startup hub, team up to make sure incoming investors get the most of their Stockholm experience.
Keynote speaker is David Helgason. Helgason is a co-founder of Nordic Makers as well as co-founder and previous CEO of Danish gaming engine Unity Technologies, that notoriously powered mega-success Pokemon Go and recently raised $400M in fresh funding.
During 2016, SUP46 saw an uptake in investment noting a record $48M invested in, then current, SUP46 members. Daniel Sonesson, CEO of SUP46, highlights the day as important in bringing financing to the region:
– I’m confident these high-quality startups will impress attending investors and I hope to see some good discussions and potential interest in investments afterwards as a result. Events like this help startups access both the finance and expertise needed to expand and enter new international markets.
