Cleantech Scandinavia has since 2007 reported on investments into Nordic cleantech companies. We saw significant growth both in private investments and public funding up until 2010. After that investments, particularly made by VCs, have declined. Interestingly the number of investments has continued to go up, leaving a clear picture that it is the large VC investments that have left the stage.

We can also see a tendency that individual private investors are becoming more engaged, both in terms of business angels and family offices, but also in increased activity on alternative trading places, where more and more cleantech companies are established each year.

In an attempt to explain how the Nordic cleantech sector is actually developing we have written this first Nordic Cleantech Growth Report focusing on actual growth and profit/loss. Through this work we see a thriving sector and would not be surprised if the significant upturn that we saw in 2014 was the start of a new golden era for Nordic cleantech.

This report is exclusive for Cleantech Scandinavia members and can be found here.
