We at ArcticStartup aim to encourage entrepreneurship and to help create a radically optimistic entrepreneurial culture here in the Nordics and Baltics, and thus have long wanted to bring more visibility to the market and most importantly give visibility to the many kick-ass startups we have here.
Now, we’re excited to announce that we’re are one step closer to our common goal by introducing ArcticIndex. It’s an early beta and we’re are adding features and improving it as we go so please be patient. There’s a road map full of features coming, but we wanted the community to be able to use it as soon as possible.
ArcticIndex is for the Nordics and Baltics what CrunchBase is for the Silicon Valley. It will be the best venue for the Nordic and Baltic startups to gain visibility and get the attention of the press, the investors, the potential employees and basically anyone at the region. This is because the US equivalent does not help small Nordic and Baltic startups much, since there are thousands of US startrups. Most of the rock star startups like Twitter, etc. get all the attention and many other small startups will never be found from the hay stack. This is why we wanted to create our own ‘CrunchBase’ and you, our dear readers, decided it’s called ArcticIndex.
You can register here and add your startup’s information to the database as well as your founder/management team. This will ensure that we, or anyone else for that matter, will always have up-to-date information at hand when we write about your startup and make sure all the readers get to know your startup.
If your profile or your startup’s profile is already in the ArcticIndex, you can edit your information if its not correct or up-to-date. Please, avoid marketing language and try to keep to the facts so we will have an objective resource that we can all use.
We will also pull out your ArcticIndex profile to the end of the blog post when we write about you on this blog. This is to ensure that by filling and keeping the information at ArcticIndex up-to-date you can make sure that all the facts in the ArcticStartup blog posts are accurate.
Also, since it’s an early Beta do let us know if you have problems logging in, filling information etc. As said, this is the first version and we’re improving it as we go, but we wanted to give you this right away so you can start using it as soon as possible to see what works, what you want more of and what you want less of. Thank you and make sure to sign up now!
