Nordic Startup School

Nordic Startup School creates international success stories together with great founders. We accelerate startups through our world-class program, mentors and funding. While Tomi Terentjeff was living in US, he noticed that plenty of Finnish startups showed interest on US markets and were coming there to scout the market. Unfortunately most of the startups were not prepared to enter the US market, since a lot of funding is required and startups need to be precise on what they are doing and what value it is provided to the customers. Nordic Startup School was then founded to improve the quality of startups and educate their founders to become the best possible entrepreneurs they can be. Since they need a lot of help during the journey, Nordic Startup School started engaging other great entrepreneurs and investors to build up a acceleration program that will help and nourish startups to reach their potential. Nordic Startup School aims to be the best program for pre-seed startups in Europe.

More about Nordic Startup School

Hello Startups!

Let me tell you what we look for when selecting startups to join our acceleration program or invest in it.

  1. First of all team. You must have not only a solid team but most importantly a team you get along with and can work long term. This comes before any sort of pitch. We are likely gonna work together for a year or so, so we better get along.

  2. After that comes the pitch. As long as is clearly presented, the idea and the value of what you are doing are more than fine. The pitch is made to raise interest so we can have later followed up talks, where you can show numbers and stuff in detail.

  3. Cap table. You are an early startup most likely or have had the first round of funding. It would be weird if the operational team does not own the majority of it.

  4. Is your website in the local Nordic Language and not in English? Then you can forget about it. You must have an international mindset from the start.

And that should be the most important ones!
