This year’s Arctic15 is just a little over a month away and we’re ready to announce the 14 finalists (the last finalist is decided by Tekes) that will be on stage to compete for the grand prize, that is now almost €30 000 in cash and prizes. During last week, we received almost votes from almost 3000 people in total. Some categories were clearer than others, but overall – it was still a very tight competition. The 14 finalists are listed below.
We will be in touch with each of the finalists based on the contact details of their application. Congrats to the finalists – now it’s time to prepare your pitch for the 18th of October!

Disclosure: ArcticStartup has partnered with some of these companies in the form of sponsors, demo stands or prizes to the winner, but these affiliations have not affected the decisions in any way what so ever. Each company has purely been chosen on the merits of their application and the pitch therein, and the product and traction so far. The decisions are final.
