About Rising North

Rising North aims to help Nordic startups become global leaders by financing unique spearhead projects and initiatives organized jointly by Nordic organizations. The 1,5M EUR fund is operated in Finland by the Startup Foundation, which is a non-profit founded in 2012 to support entrepreneurship and startups. The three-year fund has the goal is to support yearly 8-16 projects and initiatives. Rising North gives out grants of 5 000 - 50 000 EUR.
