No pitching. We build syndication around impact startups.

The second day we will be with focus on Nordic Top 50 Impact Companies.

As we have done very successfully in 2019 and 2020, we will match impact startups and investors in round table match making sessions, so co-investor opportunities naturally fall in place.

50 very promising impact startups from the Nordics and the Baltics (Preseed to Series A) will be matched with 150-200 early stage investors [business angels, VC, family offices, governmental funds, impact funds] from all over the world.

We don’t match by coincidence. The Nordic Top 50 Impact Companies 2021 will be presented already in November, so investors can apply to meet with them during the summit.

Startups and investors will be matched in advance and prepared before they arrive.
