Today Helsinki joins a pan-European network of startup ecosystems, powered by Dealroom. Initiated by Newco Helsinki, the new startup database maps 1,858 startups, 107 VC investors, 30K startup jobs, and 208 corporates in the city, cataloguing every funding round, acquisition, and much more.
The Helsinki startup database joins 19 other European tech startup ecosystem solutions, including the UK, France, Berlin and Amsterdam.
Helsinki has built a reputation of an important and influential innovation hub, as home to the open source project that gave the world Linux, one of the most important events on the European tech calendar (Slush), and one of only 10 European tech companies valued at over $10B – Supercell.
This new database captures and complements the rich mix of industry players and factors contributing to Helsinki’s tech sector, including accelerators, universities, support organizations, workspace and events, in addition to startups and scaleups like Small Giant Games, Wolt, HMD Global, and Smartly.io, and VC, private equity and corporate investors.
A key feature of the database is the startup/investor matching tool. Founders and investors can find leads that match their requirements and interests. With the Helsinki database cataloguing 107 investors including Icebreaker VC, EQT Group, EIT Digital, VERSO Capital, Invesdor and Inventure, corporates like Nokia Corporation and Alma media, as well as 1.8K+ startups, this is a valuable tool, at a crucial time.
