In 2017, we produced and distributed 1,000 physical copies while over 20,000 individuals viewed The Nordic 100 online. This year, we are setting our sights even higher and want to double the reach and impact. We are very happy that we have secured like-minded collaborators who can help us achieve that and take The Nordic 100 to new heights, with Slush, StartupGuide, +Impact and The Hub all onboard as Partners. As was the case in 2017, this year we are only highlighting individuals and not organisations, and present them in alphabetical order. This year we’ll add accompanying tags and information on their background and expertise to ensure that this resource is as useful as possible to those looking to engage with the Nordic ecosystem.
TL;DR: Nominations are open right NOW, GO! HERE!

But hurry, nominations close at the end of this week on Friday at 5pm… At that point, these nominations will be added to the longer shortlist compiled by us, before our judging panel ultimately decides on the final 100 ahead of revealing this year’s The Nordic 100 at Slush on December 3rd at the The Nordic Mixer.
