How has each country started 2016 compared to 2014 and 2015?

After looking at the first six weeks of investments to get an idea of what the rest of 2016 could bring for the Nordic startup scene, in this post, we’ll move our attentions to the individual countries, comparing the investments that they’ve all seen at the start of 2016 compared to the start of the two previous years.

The same warning applies as it did to the previous post, strong conclusions can’t be drawn from a sample of 6 weeks, so we won’t provide analysis on what it means, however, by looking at the number of investments, the total amount raised, and the top 3 investments it can provide a good temperature-check for what we may be able to expect from each country in 2016.
