Schibsted has a strong position in the startup ecosystem and we believe them to be in the perfect position to take the leading role amongst established corporates in the Nordic startup scene. They are involved in almost 200 internal or external startups, such as Firi, Tørn and Tibber, and they are channelling more and more resources towards tech and growth companies. Behind it all lies a successful venture into classifieds which has turned into a large cash reserve that is being directed towards growth opportunities. Solid financial resources combined with Nordic wide news reach in the millions makes them powerful and interesting – an important player to understand and work closely with going forward.
As we enter a long-term strategic partnership with Schibsted our goal is to integrate them deeply into our community and connect them with great startups and founders. Together we will host valuable event series and collaborate on great content for our members and extended network. Ultimately we hope to see more and more investments into startups within our community, and we hope to have an impact on Schibsted’s strategy as they venture further into the startup ecosystem.
To get to know Schibsted better, and to kickstart our partnership, we have invited them in for a “Deep Dive” event. Instead of them presenting who they are, we have asked for the opportunity to cross-examine their top management, investment professionals and portfolio companies. To get a full understanding of the force of their engagement, their enhanced investment mandate and their strengths and weaknesses as an investor.
