Sneak-peek into the Nutty Ventures acceleration universe

Today, change is happening faster than at any other time in human history. We need bold new ideas, at an accelerated pace, cutting through the traditional hierarchies and structures, and implemented through a new model of collaborative action to survive and grow

Acceleration Programs

We are accelerating startups across the Nordic region through our collaboration with Founder Institute, the world’s leading pre-seed accelerator based in the Silicon Valley. We are currently running their Sweden Virtual 2022 program and have now launched the Nordic Virtual Fall 2022 program!

Events & Networking

We are launching the Nordic Startup Festival in August 2022 on the topic “Nordic Secret Sauce of Building Unicorns.” It is a full-day virtual event connecting entrepreneurs, startups, investors, and local & international ecosystems through fireside chats, panels, and matchmaking opportunities. More events will be unveiled in coming weeks.

Ecosystem Exchange

Sweden is a breeding ground for unicorns and is now well on its way to become the leading impact nation in the world. We are connecting the Swedish startup, impact, and innovation ecosystems with the emerging markets and opening doors to funding, international marketing, and knowledge exchange.

Corporate Innovation

Today’s organizations need to move at lightning pace – breaking new grounds, testing new ideas, and tearing down silos and inertia. We help organizations tap into innovative communities, acceleration sessions, and technology partnerships with leading tech companies across the globe.
