Despite record breaking amounts of venture capital, significantly less is coming from U.S investors

With the Nordics breaking the $1B mark in Venture Capital in a calendar year for the first time, and on course to rival London for venture capital within three years, and previously seeing a correlation between higher rounds when U.S investors are present in a round, it might be a natural assumption to think we’re seeing more U.S based investors funding Nordic startups.

However, not only are we not seeing an increase, we are actually seeing a significant decrease, with only 11.3% of the funding rounds in 2015 including a U.S based investors.
