When The Nordic Web originally launched we were also working on a product called The Nordic Numbers, with the purpose of tracking Nordic startups growth metrics in order to provide investors with more detailed information to help determine which Nordic startups were worth backing. Due to funding issues, we eventually had to park this project, yet building a directory of some sort for Nordic startups has always remained on the agenda, and today I’m happy to announce we are moving one step towards that once more.
We’ve partnered up with Dealroom to reintroduce The Nordic Numbers, however, instead of focusing on growth metrics, we are instead building the most comprehensive database of startups, funding and exit activity that exists for the Nordics.
This is a work in progress, and together with Dealroom, we will be working on improving the data and adding companies over the next couple of months. We will also be inputting our proprietary dataset so this all feeds through into The Nordic Numbers too (Right now, the data is all from Dealroom’s side)
From the very beginning, The Nordic Web’s goal was to be the number one resource for providing the most in-depth and acccurate snapshot of what is happening in the Nordic startup scene, especially when it comes to funding and exit activity.
Through our quarterly analyses, we’ve managed to do that to an extent, and we’ve also had data exchanges with Mattermark and Crunchbase, as our proprietary dataset has quickly become the most comprehensive record of Nordic startup activity.
The Nordic Numbers now provides us with the vehicle to turn our dataset into something more insightful, actionable and useful than ever before.
Bear with us over the next month or so while we continually improve the data, but in the meantime, you can take it for a spin here.
