Nordic Fintech Snippets – April

In April, the Nordic fintech industry just kept on booming with 8 funding rounds in total. We also saw many partnerships formed, and Lendify being acquired by Lunar. Nordic API Gateway was reborn as Aiia, and Enfuce, who started a partnership with Rabobank and Plexian, also powered the new launches of Talenom and Fellow Finance.

We will be also launching our annual Helsinki Fintech Guide in June. If you are interested in exposure in this local industry handbook with a global reach, download the media kit over here.

We will also keep on organizing the Nordic Fintech Trends webinars regularly.


This is Nordic Fintech Snippets, the combined effort of all the Nordic Fintech Hubs, sharing the most important and latest news in fintech and digital finance from each country.
