Nordic Innovation House, April
Our April event in a collaboration with Nordic Innovation House was the best in terms of how all the speakers managed to finish their pitches on time - first time in the history of PitchLab!
The full video of the interview with Sami Jaaskelainen, Community Director of Nordic Innovation House in Singapore. Nordic Innovation house is a community platform accelerating high-quality Nordic startups and scaleups in Singapore and Southeast Asia. It is supported by Nordic Innovation and the Nordic Council of Ministers. Nordic Innovation House has a presence in Silicon Valley, New York, Singapore and Hong Kong.
The most important take away is that if you know of a startup incorporated in Singapore and one of the co-founders is from the Nordic countries, you are eligible to join NIH and get their full support :)
NIH is constantly enlarging their partnerships globally and is launching a program for the Corporations this year.
Please enjoy the video of the pitches from our brave participants:
