Nordic Semiconductor has been chosen among a select group of companies to participate in the Euronext Tech Leaders initiative. The initiative is described by Euronext N.V., the organization behind the venture, as “aiming to strengthen the European tech sector and provide a catalyst for the next generation of tech leaders”.
Euronext Tech Leaders comprises 100+ companies, each meeting a specific set of strict qualifying criteria. The Tech Leaders initiative complements Euronext's existing tech offering and, according to Euronext, is “dedicated to supporting high-growth and leading tech companies in their growth and financing journey”.
“Nordic is delighted to have been recognized by Euronext as a high-growth and tech leader,” says Ståle “Steel” Ytterdal, SVP IR with Nordic Semiconductor. “We know our wireless tech is among the best in the world and we’re increasingly seeing it used to address global climate, sanitation, and other sustainability challenges. But to have that recognized by Euronext, a respected and independent European financial organization, underscores the hard work of Nordic’s people.”
Euronext N.V. bourse (stock exchange) is the largest group in Europe, and one of the largest in the world. It was originally created via the mergers of the Amsterdam, Paris, and Brussels stock exchanges in 2000. Its tech ecosystem brings together 700+ tech companies listed on Euronext markets with 660+ alumni of its pre-IPO programs and a large international investor base financing all growth profiles of tech companies.
Euronext is noted for its support of Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) initiatives. For example, it recently released a guide to help companies engage in climate change mitigation policies with a focus on limiting the global temperature increase to 1.5°C. This is in line with the U.N.’s Sustainable Development Goal to “take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts”.
