Softbank’s Vision Fund is the largest VC in the world, with USD 100 billion in capital. Earlier this year, Softbank announced plans to raise second USD 100 billion fund, as well as a USD 55 million fund for early stage VC focused on early stage AI. So far, Softbank has only had a few investments in Nordic companies, though they famously bought a stake in Supercell in 2013 (which was later sold to Tencent). However, partners have been present at Nordic events like Slush and TechBBQ to connect with deep tech startups, and with funds focused in Nordic strongholds, so interactions with Nordic startups might increase.
