SWAT Network

Alongside our advisory team Nordic Alpha has a non-official SWAT Network consisting of
some of the best CxO and sales executives in Northern Europe within industry transformation & hyper growth (+40% YoY growth).

We believe that swift access to this type of skillset is essential to fuel the growth acceleration of our investments. Nordic Alpha’s SWAT Network offers participants access to like-minded profiles and a unique opportunity to get close to hardtech companies with the potential to lead the large global transformations. We heavily involve SWAT capacities already in the pre-investment phase as co-architects on the growth and investment strategy alongside Nordic Alpha and the founder team, allowing everyone to gain deep insights prior to deciding on board level or full-time CxO level deployment.
