The latest analysis from Startup Europe Partnership confirms what has been evident on the ground for some time - the Nordics are building a vibrant tech ecosystem. 

Over $6.5bn has been invested into 430 Nordic start-ups. A key group of companies has led the way with rounds of over $100m including Supercell, Spotify,, Klarna, iZettle and Zendesk. 

But it is not just investment, we are seeing very high levels of interest from key acquirers in buying the most promising companies in the Nordics. This is confirmed by the data which shows that 205 companies have been acquired in the last five years with 40% being acquired by US companies.

The Nordics are now established as one of the key clusters in Europe and we expect many more deals in the region.
