Venture Capital in the New Nordics: Bridging the Deep Tech Funding Gap

The Nordic countries have a relatively strong financing ecosystem for start-ups that focus on the consumer segment, gaming and fintech. However, there is a large funding gap for early stage companies who develop advanced, complex technologies, also called Key Enabling Technologies, and within life sciences. Join us for an evening where Silicon Vikings and AI Sweden are partnering up to present what is being done and discuss what is further needed to be done to improve the funding situation for these start-ups that will build future industries in the  New Nordics.
