The road to getting funded is a rocky one. You polish your pitch deck, you try to reach out to relevant investors and go to all the events in the hope of getting a meeting with a right match. Whether you’re an early stage startup or an established company, pushing it and hustling is your only way. But getting the word out about yourself is just as equally important. This way, investors can hear about you beforehand and you might not have to tell your story from step 0 all the time – and by reaching the right eyeballs, you might even get approached.
We want to make it easier for Nordic and Baltic startups to gain visibility and help investors see who’s actively looking to get funded, so we have curated a list of some promising startups who are raising money right now. Take a look at our first batch of selected startups who are currently on the hunt.
