500 Nordics´ mission is to bring Silicon Valley best practices to the Nordics. The main focus is helping Nordic companies expand beyond the region through marketing and distribution. We did this with accelerator programs and by leveraging our 200+ strong global mentor network.
We were part of the global network of 500 Startups regional efforts. 500 Startups is the most active seed investor in the world with over 1400 investments and $200M USD under management.
500 Startups ended the Nordic initiative in 2016 due to changes within the organization. We ran out two successful accelerator programs in Oslo and Stockholm and invested $2,5M in 27 companies during our time.
