Announcing The Nordic 100 2017

The Nordic 100 is an annual list recognising the 100 most impactful and influential figures in the Nordic tech scene each year.

Individuals at the forefront of shaping and positioning the region as one of the world’s most important innovation hubs.

We recognise investors, entrepreneurs and community builders that are playing important roles in the region and are influencing what tomorrow looks like in the Nordics, and indeed the world.

The intention is that The Nordic 100 will serve as a resource to better understand who the key people from the Nordics are, providing you with an easy and actionable resource for engaging with the Nordic ecosystem all year round.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to nominate and to my fellow judges on the panel who ultimately decided this year’s The Nordic 100: Robin Wauters (, Natalia Brzezinski (Symposium), Salóme Guðmundsdóttir (Icelandic Startups) and Marianne Vikkula (Slush).
