Top Finnish startups to follow in 2020

Home to one of Europe’s preeminent startup conferences, Slush, Finland has a fast-growing startup ecosystem that has emerged in the past ten years.

But what are the startups you need to follow in 2020?

Our team of experts at Sifted — in partnership with — have chosen a list of companies we think you need to know about, with an added “Sifted take” on some to provide an extra layer of insight.

We have picked companies based on the money they have raised, how quickly they are hiring and how formative they have been to the startup ecosystems around them. If there is anyone missing from this list, or anything is wrong in the numbers, please let us know by email at

Please also check out our jobs board to see some of the companies hiring from these lists.

NB The Dealroom data about employee growth is mainly from LinkedIn, and so is not perfect (people may not always update their profiles when they move jobs, for instance). But it gives some idea about the rate of change from 2018 to 2019. We have classed 0%-20% growth as “staying level”, 20%-100% growth as “growth” and 100% plus growth as “hyper-growth”.Logos provided by Clearbit
