We have 200 investors from all over the world coming to Stockholm this week, looking for the next Nordic unicorn success story. Well, due to the pandemic, the investors will ‘come’ virtually for the Arctic15 Stockholm event. Looking for deals, co-investments and making fresh connections.
So who’s coming? As the sign-ups are coming in so fast the last few days, we are not able to keep up with updating the Who’s here? -page with all the investors, but check it out and you will get the idea of the calibre of people joining. They will be visible inside the Deal Room event platform.
