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.
2018 is the third edition and The Nordic 100 is now firmly established as the main resource for engaging with who’s who in the Nordic ecosystem all year round.
In 2017, we produced and distributed 1,000 physical copies while over 20,000 individuals viewed The Nordic 100 online.
This year, we are setting our sights even higher and want to double the reach and impact. We are very happy that we have secured like-minded collaborators who can help us achieve that and take The Nordic 100 to new heights, with Slush, StartupGuide, +Impact and The Hub all onboard as Partners.
As was the case in 2017, we only highlight individuals not organisations, and present them in alphabetical order. This year we’ll add accompanying tags and information on their background and expertise to ensure that this resource is as useful as possible to those looking to engage with the Nordic ecosystem.
How will it work?
TL;DR: Nominations are open right now!!
You have the chance to nominate the individual(s) that you believe should definitely be included in The Nordic 100 2018.
Whether this person is a founder, investor or community builder, let us know why we simply have to consider them for The Nordic 100 this year.
But hurry, nominations close at the end of this week on Friday at 5pm….
At that point, these nominations will be added to the longer shortlist compiled by us, before our judging panel ultimately decides on the final 100 ahead of revealing this year’s The Nordic 100 at Slush on December 3rd at the The Nordic Mixer in combination with the launch of StartupGuide Nordics.
