Nordic Mingle Event

  • Dreamplex Nguyen Trung Ngan 21 Nguyễn Trung Ngạn Hồ Chí Minh Vietnam (map)

The Nordic countries (Sweden, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Iceland) are all known for modern and innovative societies. All Nordic countries also consistently rank at the absolute top in global innovation indices. This has lead to a range of global startups emerging from the Nordics, with Spotify, Skype and Rovio Entertainment (Angry Birds) being only a few examples.

 2019 marks 50 years of diplomatic relations between Sweden and Vietnam. This anniversary is honoured by a range of activities, including a startup delegation from Sweden to Vietnam. On Wednesday May 8 this delegation, together with the Nordic Innovation House in Singapore, will organise a Nordic Mingle Event.

 You are hereby invited to the Nordic Mingle Event, where you can expect to learn more about the Nordic entrepreneurship ecosystems and how they relate and compare to the Vietnamese one. You will also get a chance to listen to pitches from Swedish startups ranging from EdTech and FinTech highly interested in the Vietnamese market, and not to mention mingle and socialize with entrepreneurship counterparts from the Nordic countries.
