We improved our open-source cheat sheet on all things Finnish tech with more startup data, foreign investments, key leaders and organizations, and more. Because it’s open-source, feel free to add relevant content!
Finland is one of the most interesting and innovative startup nations that exist at the moment. In a recent interview with Petri Lehmuskoski, one of the country’s foremost investors, he claimed this has everything to do with Finnish culture. The Finnish people are resourceful, hardworking and great at building things. But it’s not only that: Finland has a unique combination of strengths in research, education, innovation and technology. The fact that the Finnish government as well as Telecom giant Nokia have been helping startups financially doesn’t hurt either.
At the end of January, we published an open-source cheat sheet for everyone who is interested in the Finnish startup scene. We wanted to give entrepreneurs from Finland and beyond a chance to find out and reach important investors, VCs and accelerators.
More information about Finnish tech, from Finnish professionals
Since the guide has become an increasingly important source for all things Finnish and tech, we decided to provide a wider review of this scene, including additional tabs about various subjects. Because the table is open to the public, we would like to invite everyone who’s involved with this scene to provide us with more data on their startup, co-working space, relevant organization, etc. In other words, help us make this guide the most updated and accurate go-to list it can be.
Geektime would like to thank all the people who have contributed and updated the list so far, especially Jaana Pylvänen from NewCo Factory.
