Who are Tech Nordic Advocates?

TECH NORDIC ADVOCATES is Northern Europe’s largest – and only pan-Nordic/Baltic (not-for-profit) – tech/startup ecosystem network of founders, startups, scaleups, investors, mentors, startup/scaleup hubs, incubators, accelerators, corporates, universities and public sector organisations, working together to:

  • stimulate Nordic/Baltic startup, scaleup and tech sector collaboration and growth
  • connect Nordic/Baltic tech/startup ecosystem players with investors and growth partners in other global tech hubs through Global Tech Advocates  (see our Global Tech Advocates family)
  • promote the Nordics/Baltics as a leading, global tech/startup hub to attract media attention, global investors and growth partners to the Nordic/Baltic tech sector

Why Tech Nordic Advocates?

  • The Nordic/Baltic tech scene is more exciting than ever
  • Spotify’s IPO and other Nordic/Baltic tech success stories including Klarna, Skype, Trustly, Just Eat, Revolut, Trustpilot, Transferwise, Funderbeam and many more tell the tale of a buzzing Nordic/Baltic tech sector, the scale of opportunity in Nordic/Baltic tech, and offer encouraging benchmarks for other entrepreneurs and investors in the region and globally
  • With small home markets and limited access to risk capital, talent and mentors ‘at home’, Nordic/Baltic startups develop products with global markets in mind – first step is Nordics/Baltics, then the world!
  • Nordic/Baltic entrepreneurs tell us that what they need to scale and grow is access to other Nordic/Baltic and international markets, investors and partners
  • Nordic, Baltic and global investors and corporates want help to scout for the best Nordic/Baltic startups, scaleups, innovations and partners

That’s what Tech Nordic Advocates do: We join the dots and stimulate collaboration across the Nordic/Baltic tech/startup ecosystem and connect Nordic/Baltic startups, scaleups, entrepreneurs, investors, corporates and global tech hubs and growth partners with each other through our Global Tech Advocates family.

Tech Nordic Advocates is the only pan-Nordic/Baltic tech/startup ecosystem that can do that and as such the direct gateway to investors, growth partners, markets and other leading tech hubs around the world.  What are you waiting for?
