Nordic Markets – A 360 Degree Founder’s Perspective and Key Learnings

December 11, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am


The Nordic region is known for its similarities in culture and history, but when doing business, a “size fits all” approach isn’t optimal.

If you are working towards expanding in the Nordics, this online session together with Schibsted can provide some guidance. As one of the largest corporate VCs, Schibsted has invested and scaled multiple companies to most Nordic markets.

In this session, together with its portfolio company Lendo, they will share learnings from expanding across the Nordics and the main differentiators and surprises comparing the countries that all founders should be aware of.

This event is ideal for companies keen on venturing into other Nordic countries and for those who are curious about the differences and similarities across the Nordic countries.


9:55 – 10:00 – Zoom Stream Opens
