About the Nordics Chapter
Keiretsu Forum Nordics is a Nordic based investor network covering the four Nordic countries Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden. The founding chapter in Stockholm was opened in the beginning of 2016.
Based on a pan Nordic network of capital, resources and deal flow, Keiretsu Forum Nordics is active in the local investment and entrepreneurial community, creating bridges between investors, entrepreneurs, partners and society as a whole to ensure accelerated rates of innovation. Keiretsu Forum Nordics provide members with high-quality and diverse investment opportunities, including unprecedented international reciprocal deal flow between Europe, North America, and Asia, bridging the gap between investors and ventures from different continents and exploring the synergies within the global Keiretsu Forum angel investment network.
The founding chapter in Stockholm enjoys the strong support of STOAF – the Stockholm Business Angels community founded in 2008 consisting of close to one hundred members – and possess and share a solid background as angel investors as well as diverse industry expertise, from telecommunications and life science to financing, games and information technology. Additional chapters within Keiretsu Forum Nordic will open both in Sweden and in each respective country.
The Nordic countries have demonstrated their ability to adapt effectively to global changes in the business environment and have created an outstanding innovative climate for entrepreneurs in diverse venture areas to flourish globally. New industries have emerged within IT, internet, music, gaming and digitalization. The Nordics now account for almost 10% of the world’s billion-dollar ventures over the last decade. Stockholm, representing half of them, has become the second most unicorn hub in the world on a per capita basis, with Skype as its first in 2005, followed by Spotify, King, Mojang, and Klarna.
