Bay Area Nordics and those wanting to learn from them, met over a beer to discuss this burning question at our recent event held in San Francisco. Torsten Kolind from YouNoodle led the discussion with a panel of young entrepreneurs who all have direct experience with Danish and American business culture.

Congratulations to Unity technologies on their $400M raise today! This (again) proves the power of Silicon Valley, and how Danish tech companies can leverage the Bay Area.

For your perspective:
- The combined VC investments in Denmark accumulated in 2016 €370M (≈$400). Numbers from the Danish Venture Capital Association.

- Half of the investment into Unity was secondary market shares, which means that the early investors AND employees suddenly become very rich - making them potential angel investors (which often happens).

As a side note: Founder and board member of Unity, David Helgason has been a mentor in several of the SCALEit programs.
