● About The Program
New Nordic Leads is a training program that boosts cross-border investments by improving startups’ investment readiness and educating the next generation of lead angels in the Baltics. The program is put together by EstBAN and FiBAN and fueled by Central Baltic Interreg. The startup investment readiness training is coordinated by Civitta.
The project will also focus on stimulating startups’ investment readiness and raising the overall investment knowledge within the sector and building a strong united investment ecosystem between Finland and Estonia.
During this project we’ll form a total of eight syndicate investments that each go through a half-year round consisting of high-quality training. At the end of each round, syndicate members will have the opportunity to invest in the most promising high-tech startups.
To achieve that project training boot camps for startups and investment mentoring will be carried out during the project. The startups will be provided international high-level meetings with investors, VC and corporate partners.
Cross-border investing is also in focus of the project to support regional startups raising capital from international angel syndicate investments to have better cross-region scaling opportunities. In order to build a united strong investment ecosystem, the importance of building relations and sharing experience can not be underestimated. Therefore startups and investors will be taken to regional startup conferences and flagship events where special networking and pitching events will be carried out within the project.
