“In the Nordics, we work hard, we are extremely loyal to our company or our cause and we love technology. It is, therefore, no surprise that the Nordics have produced a string of very successful technology companies. During the last five years, the Nordics, which account for only 4% of the European population, have produced over 25% of all European exits,” said Helga Valfells, CEO of NSA Ventures and Steering Board Member at Rising North.

The delegation included Leadfeeder, PromoRepublic and Solu from Finland; Iris AI and DXTR Tactile from Norway; Corti and Zigna from Denmark; It’s My Styl and Optolexia from Sweden; and Watchbox and Sling from Iceland. The startup organizations included Slush, Aaltoes and Startup Life from Finland, SUP46 from Sweden, Icelandic Startups from Iceland, #CPHFTW from Denmark, as well as MESH Norway and Startup Norway.
