Cross-border investments play an important role in the Nordic countries and in Europe in general. However, existing published statistics on cross-border investments are quite limited. More in-depth statistics on cross-border investments would be valuable.
Concerning available existing cross-border investment statistics, existing reports (EVCA - Nordic Reports and EVCA Year Books) provide a useful basis for understanding the development of cross-border investments in the Nordic countries.
Furthermore, their underlying data collected by PEREP_Analytics can be used to create a more detailed picture of cross-border flows. Expanding the cross-border investment and fundraising analyses in the Nordic Report appears as the most feasible approach to produce cost effectively deeper statistical understanding of the development of crossborder activity in the Nordic region.
In facilitating cross-border investments in the Nordic region, NICe would have a natural role in supporting more in-depth statistics in cross-border VC as well as platforms for networking and knowledge sharing between Nordic investors and other stakeholders in the ecosystem.
