Introducing 'Dealflow'

If there's one thing we get complimented on more than anything else at The Nordic Web, it's our weekly newsletter.

The Nordic Web Weekly keeps thousands of investors, entrepreneurs, corporates and anyone with an interest in keeping their finger on the pulse of the Nordic startup scene up to date on all of the funding rounds, exits and top stories from the region.

When we first started the newsletter at the beginning of 2014 we would only be reporting around five investments per week and the odd exit. Due to the acceleration in the growth and investment in the region, this can now happen in a single day.

Therefore, to keep in line with the speed of the news in the Nordics these days, we've decided to ramp up our news curation as well, today launching a dedicated area of the site entitled 'Dealflow' to ensure our readers can keep up to date with all the funding rounds, exits and biggest stories on a daily basis, in addition to The Nordic Web Weekly.

In terms of our position on news, this remains unchanged:

1) We believe that a paragraph is more than enough to get the important and interesting details from any deal or story.

2) The local tech media in the region do a fantastic job of covering news already.

Bearing those two points in mind, Dealflow will simply provide a short paragraph summing up the main details (written by us) before linking to the full story on the various tech media that have covered it in full.

Initially, we'll be updating the page a couple of times a day, before aspiring to 'real-time' in the not too distant future.

We hope that 'Dealflow' will become your daily port of call for keeping up-to-date on the Nordic startup scene, however, if you would prefer your news on a less regular basis directly to your inbox then don't forget to sign up to The Nordic Web Weekly below.

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
