Nordic Venture Forum a success!

The 50 most promising Nordic companies presented at the Nordic Venture Forum on 19 October, 2009.

The Nordic region is recognised as the most entrepreneurial region within Europe by the OECD and the Nordic Venture Forum showcases the highest potential companies in life sciences, ICT and clean technologies.

For the second year, the most promising companies were selected for the Nordic Venture 50 to present before an audience of Nordic and international venture capital, corporate investors and strategic partners. Additionally, 10  early-stage companies with high-growth potential (venture case) were selected through the Investor Readiness Program to present their activities as well.

The Nordic Venture Forum also helps identifying the most promising start-up companies across Europe. The event's top 10 presenters will automatically qualify for the European Venture Summit and the Eurecan European Venture Contest - where they could win EUR 90.000 !
