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.
