One of the Nordic’s most prestigious and biggest startup events has come to an end. The Grand Finale of the The Nordic Startup Awards 2018 took place in Denmark. This year, the competition had reached the number of 2,500 startup nominees, which were thoroughly screened and evaluated by 50 expert ambassadors and jury members. The winners from these rounds were then further ranked by an international jury, and their decision was eventually combined with over 35.000 individual public votes from each of the five Nordic countries.
As a unique series of events in the Nordic countries – Denmark, Sweden, Iceland, Norway, and Finland – Nordic Startup Awards recognize, celebrate and connect the Nordic startup ecosystem bringing together innovators, growth companies and entrepreneurs from all industries possible. With no exception!
All countries have presented high quality candidates and there is a good balance between B2B and B2C companies, also characterised by being extremely scalable.
— Kim Balle, CEO of Global Startup Awards
