This week Mightifier had the honor of representing Finland in The Nordic Pitch at SXSW Conference in Austin, Texas. The Nordic Pitch gathered the best startups from all the Nordic countries on one stage. Three of the five startups were education products and The Mighty United was proud to take the stage on March 13th to present our innovative EdTech solution from the education super power, Finland.

The Nordic Pitch opening speech was given by HRH Crown Prince Haakon of Norway. His Royal Highness spoke beautifully and encouraged everyone to strive for strong Nordic collaboration, where other Nordic companies are seen as partners in cooperation rather than competitors. Also The Nordic Pitch aimed for that goal as the event gathered the best Nordic startups under one roof to showcase the best innovations from all the Nordic countries. It was truly inspiring to hear the pitches of the other startups No Isolation, Lexplore, Diwala and Penstable. Awesome job everyone!
