STOP PRESS: NEW BUSINESS PARTNERS TO SUPPORT NORDIC/BALTIC STARTUP/SCALEUP/TECH SECTOR GROWTH – ALSO IN STOCKHOLM:

We’re delighted to welcome:

Potter Clarkson
Potter Clarkson is delighted to join Tech Nordic Advocates and support TNA’s mission to accelerate the growth of the tech/start up scene in the Nordics. Founded in 1889, Potter Clarkson is an award-winning, top-tier firm of European patent and trademark attorneys and IP lawyers, and one of the largest full-service intellectual property (IP) practices in Europe. In recent years, we have expanded significantly in Scandinavia: In 2018, we opened our first office in Copenhagen, and last week, we celebrated our move to larger premises in Stockholm. Potter Clarkson has worked with companies in the Nordic region for three decades. Our new offices are ideally located to enhance the wide range of IP services we offer in the region. Becoming a partner of Tech Nordic Advocates is a natural step for us following TNA’s significant expansion in the region. The tech industry is rapidly growing in the Nordics and in this competitive and fast-paced environment, there is a compelling need for innovators to be on the front foot when it comes to protecting IP. Potter Clarkson’s goal is to work closely and strategically with Nordic/Baltic startups, scaleups and other tech sector clients, to ensure you gain the most commercial benefit from investment in IP. Got a question? Get in touch. Always happy to chat!

Zenia.ai
“They say you’re only as strong as your network – and this is definitely true as a co-founder of a growing startup, and the reason TNA is so important for our growth. Zenia.ai is a Stockholm based, social media marketing tool with particular features that help ecommerce sellers in Europe and Asia to market their products across Facebook, Pinterest and YouTube.  I first met the TNA team over 3 years ago in Stockholm, and was impressed by their event and the quality of the members. As Zenia began a new investment round, I reached out to Jeanette Carlsson for some intros into the UK investor scene. Jeanette not only obliged, but after seeing my background and network in Sweden, invited me to join the TNA Advisory Board, in order to help more startups, and established Swedish companies, to expand their network and find opportunities within the Nordics and beyond. To find out more about Zenia.ai and our story, download our guide here or get in touchsays Barry O’Brien, Co-founder, Zenia.ai”
