Norrsken is an impact ecosystem where entrepreneurs can find everything they need to make saving the world their business

Norrsken is an impact ecosystem where entrepreneurs can find everything they need to make saving the world their business. Our work stems from a belief in entrepreneurship and new technology as forces that can positively impact the world.

We run award-winning Norrsken House hubs in Stockholm, Sweden, Kigali, Rwanda and (soon) Barcelona, Spain.

Norrsken’s five funds have raised >500mUSD to back exceptional entrepreneurs who combine profit with positive global impact: Norrsken VC, Norrsken22, Norrsken Accelerator, Norrsken Launcher and Norrsken Africa Seed Fund. 

Norrsken is a non-profit, non-partisan and non-religious foundation. It was founded by Niklas Adalberth, co-founder of payment services unicorn Klarna.
