The Nordic High Growth Entrepreneurship Initiative aims to create joint Nordic growth enhancing activities and increase the deal flow of young innovative companies that are able to scale into Nordic and international markets. The Initiative is a result of the lighthouse project for growth entrepreneurship under the existing Nordic Cooperation Programme for Innovation and Business Policy. It is developed in close cooperation with national innovation authorities and public early investors in the Nordic countries: Tekes, Innovation Norway, Danish Business Authority, Innovation Center Iceland and Almi. Futhermore, the Initiative creates a bridge to the new Nordic Cooperation Programme for Innovation and Business Policy starting from 2014, in which growth entrepreneurship once again will be one of five lighthouse projects.
