Being local in the Nordics

First morning flight to Helsinki

This morning I travelled to Helsinki for a board meeting and to meet with interesting startups.

Alliance VC invests across the Nordics, which I believe it is an advantage compared to only invest in startups from e.g. Sweden or Norway. The main reason is that the ecosystems give birth to slightly different types of startups, which gives a wider variety of startups on a Nordic level compared to what can be found in any individual Nordic country.

But early-stage investing, and the following 10 year journey of building a company, is to a large extent a local pursuit. That’s why I took the first flight from Stockholm to Helsinki this morning.
