After revealing our finalists in 100th-81st place yesterday, today we turn our attention to the next 20 individuals and organisations who have made this year's The Nordic 100, as we announce places 80-61
Today we kick-off the inaugural The Nordic 100, designed to recognise the most influential and impactful individuals and organisations in the Nordic technology and startup scene, starting with places 100-81.
As the Nordic scene geared up for Slush, funding announcements were flying out of the blocks, with November becoming a new record month for the number of investments in the region. Catch up on all of those, as well as the exits and top stories in our monthly wrap up for November.
This morning, the Startup Europe Partnership (SEP) has released their Monitor Report on Finland, focusing on the number and health of scale-ups within the country, revealing 126 Finnish scale-ups have raised $1 billion between them.
