– It’s inspiring to see the international interest in our Nordic start-ups, says Project Manager, Emilie Christensen.
For the sixth time
The diverse group of start-ups present at this Nordic Fund Day showcased solutions that will propel us towards greener, more environmentally and conscious cities. They are tackling many of the biggest challenges we are facing related to climate change, pollution, and resource exhaustion – and as we all know, the companies developing the solutions to cope with these challenges will be the once giving the biggest returns on investments.
Nordic Fund Day has evolved to be our main Investor Day for start-ups and investors solving urban challenges. It is Nordic Edge’s most visual activity towards our international network of investors investing in, and supporting Nordic companies with smart and green solutions for our future cities. We have been building this network and creating Nordic Fund Day as a meeting place since 2021 with the goal of bridging the gap between entrepreneurs and investors who share a common goal of driving sustainable urban development.
When arranging it for the sixth time last week, over 50 start-ups, over 100 investors and 250MNOK had been made in investments at previous events. After the run through of the 11 start-ups presenting this time and hearing the buzz of the conversations happening in the room, we are hopeful these numbers will increase even further in near future.
A glimpse into the Nordic startup scene
The diversity in the start-ups presenting gives a clear picture of the great talents, cutting-edge technologies, forward-thinking solutions, and a strong emphasis on sustainability and social impact that these Nordic start-ups represents. The start-ups that were selected and the investors that were invited all had their interests within these fields:
Spaces and places:
Proptech, architecture & city development
Use, distribution and production of energy in urban areas
Solutions for blue and green mobility
Technology for enabling a smart and connected city
Technology for education, community & inclusiveness
“It was a true pleasure to be a part of the Nordic Fund Day event. The gathering was a stimulating environment filled with engaging discussions, thought-provoking sessions, and a diverse mix of interesting investors and startups.”
