We’re a big fan of the Nordic Startup Awards because sometimes it’s good to step away from external validation from funding or customers, and instead point to the people and companies in the Nordics that we respect and define us. We’ll be helping host the finals of the Nordic Startup Awards conveniently timed with our conference, The Arctic15, which you should already have on your radar.

The Norwegian winners of the Nordic Startup Awards are:

Developer Hero: Simen Sommerfeldt

Accelerator: TINC Silicon Valley
Office space: MESH
Founder of the year: Johan Brand, Kahoot!
Social Enterprise: Superplus
Bootstrapped: Dirtybit
Investor:
Founders Fund
Newcomer: Unacast
Startup of the Year: Kahoot!
Journalist: Maria Amelie
Peoples choice: Wake
Fredrik Winther, Managing Director at Oslo Business Region, says in a statement “Great role models are the main motivation for startups. The winners today demonstrates how international growth and success can be done, and not least, that it can happen fast. They inspire the startup ecosystem and are the real heroes in placing Norway and Oslo at the international startup map.”
The other Nordic national finals are happening in Helsinki, Reykjavik and Stockholm on 15 May and in Copenhagen on 20 May.
Remember to vote for our Norwegian winners to help them become Nordic champions, too – voting opens on 21 May on www.nordicstartupawards.com!
