Nordic Fintech Snippets – October 2021

Nordic Fintech Snippets – October

Once again, the Nordic financial industry had a busy month. The amount of funding cooled down a bit, but the partnership field was particularly active. It also seems that Klarna is acquiring a company nearly on a weekly basis.

Remember to join us on November 17th at Mainstreaming Cryptos webinar and on the 18th at Nordic Fintech Trends – #Iceland.

We will also set up an amazing side event at Slush in Helsinki on December 1st. Please stay tuned for that.


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.
