Here's the 28 funding rounds and 9 exits that took place in #nordictech in June 2015. By @neilswmurray on @TheNordicWeb

Top 5 Rounds (June):

Spotify $526M
Mathem $25M
Enevo $15.8M
Soundtrack Your Brand $10.9M
Blackwood 7 $7.5M

http://bit.ly/1IOcz4S
These monthly recaps are getting longer and longer each time, as activity in the Nordics continues to keep on growing. And just after May saw 23 startups raising investment in what was a record number, in June we've seen 28 startups raise, to immediately set a new record for the highest amount of investments in a month since we've been tracking funding activity. Oh, and if that wasn't enough, June also saw 9 Nordic tech companies exit!
