Slush, the leading startup and tech conference in Europe with 15,000 annual attendees, has invited ten Nordic startup organizations including SUP46, Founders House, Startup Norway, and Klak Innovit, to join them for a journey into one of the most exciting startup hubs in the world. Each startup community has also chosen two interesting founders to showcase to the NYC startup ecosystem.
The aim of the #NordicMade hashtag is to strengthen the co-operation between the Nordic hubs and bring the entire Nordic startup community together both on and offline. The event will be first of it’s kind in history bringing all Nordic hubs together, and will act as the launch for the #NordicMade hashtag.
The population of Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Iceland is only 26 million people combined, and yet the Nordic countries currently produce the most billion-dollar companies per capita trailing only Silicon Valley. Cell phones, Ikea furniture and H&M clothes have all become household items for people around the world. The next generation of giants is already budding in the Nordics.
