  • Summary of Finnish high-tech company capital raising activity – Q32010
    Finnish high-tech companies announced raising nearly €30 million of risk capital during Q3 of 2010.
    The quarterly amount was comparable to Q3 2009, when Finnish high-tech companies were able to attract around €29 million euros of financing.
    The amount of investments remained equivalent to the prior year’s Q3 activity, however, the average investment size in Q3 2008 was significantly smaller
