While Tomi Terentjeff was living in US, he noticed that plenty of Finnish startups showed interest on US markets and were coming there to scout the market.
Unfortunately most of the startups were not well-prepared enough. As a huge market offering “the American dream” there are tons of opportunities as well as tough competitions. Entering the US market is not easy, a lot of funding required and startups need to be precise on what they are doing and what value is provided to the customers.
Nordic Startup School was then founded to improve the quality of startups and educate their founders to become the best possible entrepreneurs they can be. Since they need a lot of help during the journey, we also engage with other great entrepreneurs and investors to build up an accelerator that will help and nourish startups to reach their potential.
Nordic Startup School will be the best program for pre-seed startups in Europe.
Tomi is fascinated about entrepreneurship and life. To help startups improve and grow is his mission and passion. Fundraising and business development are the things Tomi excels at but what he was best known among his network, is his “super power” of connecting the right people at the right time. With his connections from Silicon Valley to the Nordic he founded NSS with a vision to help Nordic startups reach the US market through mentoring, coaching and networking. What other said about Tomi: “Super cool boss”.LinkedIn
Enrique, how can we describe our Enrique. He has several years of experience in the startup world and even co-founded a company and ran it for two years. Been there done that, he understood how difficult it is to have an entrepreneur lifestyle. At NSS, he is the “hand of the king” who helps put all the pieces together from finding mentors, spamming their email, ensuring startup’s “health and wellbeing” to making sure everyone is having fun while working hard. As an expat, he experiences things with international wisdom and Spanish siestas. Is he joking? Most likely he always is.
