Ahead of our Q3 funding analysis next week, I decided to look at Q1-Q3 as a whole and compare it to this stage of the year in 2014. With Spotify’s $526M monster round, the venture capital scene has looked very rosy in the Nordics in 2015, with $1 billion in funding passed in a year for the first ever time, and the Nordics on course to raise more than London in three years.
But how much of this has to do with Spotify? And how are individual countries performing in raising venture capital compared to last year? By comparing all of the investments in 2014 up until September 30th, and doing so for 2015, we hope to discover the answers.
