Nordic AMPlify USA 2022-2023

Project 2022 - 2023 Active

Through this project, we build on the success laid in the AMPlify 2021 project.

The ultimate goal of Nordic AMPlify is to significantly shorten time to market, help kickstart a successful US growth journey, and initiate co-development, partnerships, and/or other business opportunities in the US market for participating companies.

The project will include the creation of a joint export platform preparing Nordic health technology businesses for business opportunities in the ecosystems as well as health care provider partnerships and networks.

The Nordic AMPlify project aims to accelerate the US market entrance and growth for the most promising Nordic Digital Health and MedTech companies by offering:

  • Hands-on support from US healthcare systems
  • Funding opportunities by providing direct access to a large network of prominent US venture capital and investment firms
  • US network development
  • Defined learning modules optimized to increase the chances of success
  • Partnering and collaboration with other Nordic companies also entering the US market

Nordic AMPlify was first introduced in 2020 as a strategic Nordic-US collaboration empowered by Nordic Innovation, Business Sweden, Business Finland, and Business Iceland in partnership with Greater Winston-Salem Inc., FCA Venture Partners, Flywheel Co-Working, chmg Capital and Winston Starts.
