Sifted lists Volare as one of the 14 Finnish startups and scaleups to watch in 2021
The Finnish startups and scaleups have raised record amounts of funding in 2021. Sifted listed 14 startups and scaleups to watch in 2021. Volare is proud to be on the list. Other companies on the list include huge successes such as Wolt and Oura.
It’s a banner year so far for investment in Finnish startups. According to Dealroom statistics, €1.2bn of VC funding has flowed into the country so far this year across 70 rounds — compared to a solid €1bn from the previous year.
This is the most VC funding that the country known for its happiness, reindeer and saunas has ever received.
Whilst 39 of those rounds were at pre-seed and seed stage level, there have also been a few megarounds of $100m+, notably Wolt’s huge $530m raise and Aiven’s $100m Series C.
Here we spotlight fourteen startups that have caught our eye because they look set for an upward trajectory.
