As a part of a larger strategy to get more venture capital to the northern parts of Sweden, Skellefteå Science City has initiated The Great Northern Capital Connect (TGNCC).

Skellefteå Science City were commissioned to open the channels between northern startups, national venture capital companies and business angels. To succeed in the best way possible, we reached out to Connect who is used to match entrepreneurs with skills and capital to help them grow.

We wanted to create a recurring meeting place where promising startups from northern Sweden could meet with and present their ideas to potential investors based in the region of Mälardalen. As a result, we initiated The Great Northern Capital Connect, or TGNCC, as we call it.
