Just got introduced new interesting site, www.scandinavianinvestmentnetwork.com. An online matching service for angel investors seeking investment opportunities and entrepreneurs seeking capital. It is part of Angel Investment Network Ltd, a London-based company that was founded in 2004 having 30 networks all over the world. It is an amazing source of knowledge if you are interested in venture and entrepreneur trends. I asked the founder, Mike Lebus, for some data to explore the different perspective on entrepreneurship and investment between UK and Scandinavia. It was rather interesting; Scandinavia is at the moment focusing agriculture, mobile and telecom while UK is focusing entertainment, film and construction. My feeling is  that Scandinavia also is starting up a lot of professional service companies at the moment – but the need for venture capital is the same and thereefor not shown in the data.
