Now some of you might wonder, what the heck is The Nordic 100? The Nordic 100 list was introduced last year, listing and recognizing the one hundred most impactful and influential figures in the Nordic tech scene. The list recognizes investors, entrepreneurs and community builders who play an important role in increasing the global footprint of this region.
Now, you have the opportunity to nominate the individual(s) that you believe should be included in the 2017 edition of The Nordic 100. This individual can be a founder, investor, community builder or someone else who is playing a significant role in the Nordic tech community.
The judging panel consists of five people, who all carry equal weight in the decision making process. They are: Natalia Brzezinski (Symposium), Salóme Guðmundsdóttir (Icelandic Startups), Robin Wauters (Tech.eu), Marianne Vikkula (Slush) and Neil S W Murray (The Nordic Web)
The final The Nordic 100 will be revealed at The Nordic Underground Party, that takes place at Slush. This year’s list will be published both as an editorial print magazine as well as online. Stay tuned to get your own copy of The Nordic 100 piece in your hands.
