The aim of TNA is to replicate TLA’s success in stimulating the growth of London and the UK’s tech sector, and to champion the potential of the Nordics and Baltics as a world-class hub for tech innovation and entrepreneurship. This will be done by supporting start-ups in finding investment, talent and mentoring as well as through collaboration and networking with investors and established tech companies.
Director of Invest in Denmark, Dorte Bech Vizard, welcomes the new Nordic-Baltic tech group based in Copenhagen:
- “Tech Nordic Advocates is an exciting new opportunity to boost tech collaboration in the Nordic and Baltic area, and I am pleased to see the initiative headquartered in Denmark. Denmark is a natural choice for a tech hub due to our vibrant start-up community, favourable framework conditions and easy access from the rest of the Nordic and Baltic countries. Invest in Denmark is ready to assist foreign investors that would like to join the Danish tech sector.”
Driving force for tech entrepreneurship and collaboration
TNA will work with existing Nordic and Baltic tech groups, communities, public and private organisations to drive opportunities and remove roadblocks hindering tech sector growth.
- “There is huge growth potential in the tech space in the Nordics and Baltics,“ says Jeanette Carlsson, Founder of Tech Nordic Advocates. “Our vision is to become the leading Northern European driving force for tech entrepreneurship and collaboration by bringing the lessons from London to the Nordics and Baltics, and build a common gateway to and from London and the international tech community.”
TNA will lead initiatives, events and activities to boost entrepreneurship, improve access to start-up finance and support, and foster tech sector collaboration across the Nordic and Baltic region. Key to this are TNA's Advocate-led Working Groups, where members discuss opportunities, address obstacles and table motions to policy makers in specific areas such as SmartCity/Urban Innovation, FinTech, CleanTech, Startup Support and Women in Tech.
