The Nordic Asian Venture Alliance (NAVA) seeks to increase the flow of East Asian venture capital into the Nordic Baltic region, both as direct investments into startups and new partnerships between
Nordic VC’s and East Asian LP’s.

Who we are

NAVA seeks to increase the flow of East Asian venture capital into the Nordics, both as direct investments and by creating new partnerships between Nordic VCs and East Asian LPs.

We are a collaboration between Asia House, TechBBQ, Copenhagen Capacity and the Danish Innovation Centres in Shanghai and Seoul.

We are supported by the Danish Industry Foundation and thus non-profit. All our work is open source and free of charge.

What we believe in

Though we have Danish roots, we are firmly committed to the Nordic vision, and deeply embedded in the Nordic community.

Nordic collaboration is paramount in an Asian context. East Asian investors are increasingly looking to Europe for new opportunities, but only by presenting ourselves with a united front can we hope to compete with large hubs in the UK, Germany and France.

For this reason we define the Nordic region broadly, and invite startups and investors from the Baltic region to join.
