What is this session about?
Finlands fastest-growing companies are invited to join peers from across the Nordics as we get together for this session on the art of growth and scaling up.
We’ll share experiences as we get cutting edge knowledge from Unicorn founders and growth experts, all while embracing the community of the most important Finnish entrepreneurs.
We’ll mingle and get drinks afterwards, so there’ll be plenty of time to swap stories with peers and stars at the end.
Who should attend the session?
- CEOs of scale-ups who want to find new ways to grow.
- Board members of scale-ups who want to help their portfolio grow.
- Investors looking to meet scale-ups.

Welcome to Nordic Scalers Summit in Stockholm and the Lab
Round-Up & Networking Mingle
Q: What or who is a scale-up?
Participating companies should have a minimum annual turnover of €2M. Have been generating revenue in preceding 3 years, have a minimum personnel of at least 10 people and growing at least 20% in the preceding 1-3 years.
Unlike startups that typically have very little revenue, scale-ups have proven their business model.
Q: Is this event free?
For sure! We’re a not-for-profit consortium with the aim to facilitate growth in Nordic scale-up companies.
