Announcing our first event: Nordic Next

One of the main reasons we haven't yet ventured into events with The Nordic Web is because the type of event that we would like to run, an invite-only investor summit focusing on showcasing the best Nordic startups and encouraging intelligent discussion already exists, it's called Nordic Next.

Not only does it exist already, it's an incredibly good event, the best one I attended in 2014 in fact. (I couldn't go last year)

So, as you can imagine, I am beyond excited to announce that from this year onwards, Nordic Next will be an event produced by The Nordic Web (This year co-organised with Invest in Skåne) and that this June we will be bringing together some of the brightest minds in technology and venture capital and showcasing one of the best deal-flows in the Nordics.

Truly honoured that Benjamin, Michael and Daniel have asked myself and The Nordic Web to take on their concept and event going forward.

The event will be held on June 8-9th in the Turning Torso, Malmö, and you can find more details here.

In the tech world, things move fast and companies are born anywhere in the world. I’m able to have an ear to the ground with The Nordic Web - the content is fresh, local, and of high quality, which is exactly what you need as a seed investor.

In fact, it’s through Neil Murray’s newsletter that I first heard about Mapillary. Several months later, I was fortunate to lead our firm’s investment in the Company to help drive the creation of a crowdsourced visual representation of our world
