Norwegian fintech in the media

Norwegian Fintech in the Media - March & April 2021

March was an eventful month for Norwegian Fintech. We saw an increase in the amount of funding rounds in fintech and new partnerships between fintech´s and corporates. We have gathered relevant media articles for you here - just in case you missed them.

This article is a part of our newsletter. Subscribe here for such updates in the future.

In the Nordics all-together there has also been some major funding rounds in March. Our friends in Helsinki Fintech Farm have visualized this here.
Swedish fintech Klarna´s funding round and recent valuation exemplifies how immense these funding rounds have been. Klarna raised $1 billion in new funding at a post-money valuation of $31 billion, making it the highest-valued private fintech in Europe. This makes Klarna on of the Nordics most valued bank, behind DNB and Nordea.
