The Matchmaking Sessions | 9th of December 2020
We conducted 150 online matchmaking sessions for 50 Nordic impact startups and almost 200 global investors and business developers.
Matching Nordic investors with global co-investors and Nordic impact startups
For the second year we selected Nordic Top 50 Impact Companies. A unique platform for global investors to be matched with co-investors around 50 very promising Nordic start-ups with green tech or other sustainable solutions.
This “by-invitation-only” part of the summit is not about pitching. We’re done with that.
9th of December 2020 from 10am-1pm the Matchmaking Sessions hosted 123 online meetings at the same time – in which each founder was sitting down with several investors at a time and discussed their business case and the potential to grow with a coalition of investors.
The characteristics of the Nordic impact startups matched with investors during the summit.
