How Do The Summer Holidays Affect Northern European Startups?

    When I first moved to Finland it was really a surprise to see how much of society shuts down during the summer. As an American it was unreal to me that a lot of people would take 3-4 weeks off at a time, but after surviving three winters here it becomes obvious you really do need to be out of the office as much as possible when the weather is so nice.

    But entrepreneurs are not known for taking time off from work. With this in mind, we decided it would be interesting to informally ask Nordic and Baltic entrepreneurs how they will be working this summer, and find out what impact the summer holidays have on their startups. Next week we will follow up with the results, so feel free to pass this poll around until Sunday the 10th of June.

    Thanks for your time!
