The share of women entrepreneurs in the Nordic countries continues to be low, even as the Nordics are considered frontrunners on women’s labour force participation. The new study Female Entrepreneurship in the Nordics 2020 maps the current entrepreneurial landscape.
In a step towards making the Nordics a leading region for sustainable growth, Nordic Innovation have become partners in Nordic Impact Business Summit 2020 and on the Impact Report Nordic Investors 2020.
Nordic Innovation offered grants for activities promoting Nordic solutions for sustainable, smart and liveable cities to relevant stakeholders from outside the Nordic region. The funding decision has been postponed due to high interest.
By supporting Nordic Innovation Houses in Hong Kong, Singapore, Silicon Valley and New York, Nordic Innovation aims to respond to challenges caused by the global Covid-19 pandemic and help enable transition towards virtual activities.
The Nordic countries are facing challenges with regard to a growing population with an extended lifespan, and a rising number of senior citizens, patients with chronic diseases and people with lifestyle diseases. But there are effective and sustainable solutions that can increase quality of life for Nordic citizens.
