Nordic Startup Awards is structured as a series of events that happen throughout the region in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. All of the events will lead to a grand finale to crown the startup kings and queens of the Nordic region.
This year 2014, the host city for the grand finale is Oslo, where the 22nd of May, those who follow their dreams and make things happen will be celebrated.
Do you know about a great startup or an individual in the startup community that you think deserves to win a startup award? Or maybe you are the founder of a startup and you are looking for validation of what you have achieved so far? Nominate your favorite startup.
The Nordic Startup Awards is a unique series of awards committed to celebrating Nordic ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit across the startup ecosystem. Its overall aim is to bring together the best entrepreneurs and organizations within the Nordic startup ecosystem. As the Awards cover the entire ecosystem we have categories that cover individuals, as well as organizations and startups.
The Awards are carried out in two rounds. First, national semi-finals are held in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. These nominations are now open. Then, semi-finalists will move on to the Grand Finale and compete to become the region’s champions. The Grand Finale is also a great chance to network and gain international exposure.
