Winners announced at busy Venture Cup STARTUP Nord finals night at The Great Northern

A night of 60 second pitches, high drama, inspirational speeches, tears and winners was enjoyed by 130 people at Venture Cup's northern regional STARTUP final held at The Great Northern international innovation house in Skellefteå.

The night may have been mostly about the nominees for the awards but there were also fantastic inspirational speeches from Kevin Forrs of Noted Media, a star of the The Great Northern entrepreneurial constellation, and Christina Rickardsson, author of Sluta Aldrig Gå, who recounted her moving tale of her journey from life in a cave in Brazil to life in Sweden.

These speakers were preceded by a series of breathtaking 60 second pitches from each of the nominees. 

And then finally we had the results.
