Silicon Vikings is partnering up with Platform6 for the Finland round of its New Nordics Pitch Competition. The round will be organised by Platform6 in Tampere on June 15th at the brand-new Nokia Arena where Arctic15 x Tampere Startup Conference takes place as a part of DigITre and Tampere Smart City Week Conference & Expo.
Silicon Vikings have launched the New Nordics Pitch Competition, a pan-Nordic and Baltic pitch competition that gathers the best startups/scaleups of the New Nordics. The competition gives startups and scaleups a platform to present their innovations to potential investors, and the winners will take part in the Grand Final in November 2022, in which they will compete to become the New Nordics Grand Champion.
The industry focuses are Smart Mobility, Sustainability, Digital Technologies, Digital Safety and Security, Smart Data and Health Technologies. The jury will comprise leading representatives from Silicon Valley and Finland’s technology investment community: venture capitalists and angel investors.
“The Platform6 team are thrilled to be part of the Silicon Vikings’ effort to strengthen and showcase the best of the new Nordic founders and innovations. We are extremely proud of and definitely looking forward to hosting the competition in Finland as well as bringing the Nordic and Baltic startup ecosystems more closely together”, explains Platform6 CEO Alexandra Santos.
