What is Startup Match?

Looking for The One? Startup Match is a quarterly matchmaking event for promising Danish pre-seed startups seeking the right investor. Our goal is to make this event the most efficient 3 hours, enabling you to both pitch and network with relevant investors.

How does this work?

If you’re representing a Danish startup, send in your application in the formula below, including relevant company information as well as your pitch deck. We will carefully review all applications and select the ones that match with the investment scope of the attending Business Angels and Venture Capital Funds. You will hear from us 10 days before the event.

Who are the investors?

While the investors vary each event, we have partnered with some of the most prominent Venture Capital Funds that invest in a wide variety of industries. In addition, the Business Angels that will participate are a combination of professional investors along with successful founders, behind some of the largest Danish exits.

The agenda?

7 startups will be selected to participate in the event. For the first two hours, each startup will have 7 minutes presenting, followed by 3 minutes with questions from the audience. Finally, there will be an hour of further networking with investors while enjoying a light dinner.

Who we are?

Nordea Startup and Growth is a specialised unit focusing on helping startups and scaleups on their path to growth by unique matchmaking, mentoring and banking service. We have joined forces with Microsoft for Startups to create the ideal matchmaking events for startups looking for investors.
