€50 000 prize and Arctic15 competition announcement

What is the role of a pitching competition in the our age? What can participating in a pitching competition do for your company? In our experience – quite a lot. Last year’s winner of the Arctic15 pitching competition, Fourdeg – received 50,000 euros investment from FIBAN and closed the round at 250,000 euros. The winner before that was Smarp, who have grown from just a few people to a global company attracting the attention of BBC and getting clients from the FTSE150.

Today, we are announcing the next edition of the Arctic15 pitching competition. To apply for a chance to win a guaranteed investment of 50,000 euros from the top angels in the Nordics from FIBAN and get their power behind your investment round – apply here.

Previous winners and participants include impressive companies such as Kiosked, who have closed over 45 million euros in funding since then or perhaps Holvi who have now exited to BBVA. Other notable companies include: Pipedrive, Transfluent, 46 Elks and many others. Together, the finalists have raised over 120 million euros.

Today, we are looking for the next top startups from the region and hopefully by applying, you will be ready to show us what you are capable of. The top 15 companies will be invited to Arctic15 (hence the name) for free and will have the chance to pitch to our jury members. With the final prize being 50,000 euros investment and additional prized from our partners, including 5,000 euros in services from ArcticStartup.

Can it change the course of your company? Sure thing. Just ask our previous winners and participants. The competition is not just about the money, of course, it is also about exposure in media and during the event which can get you your next funding round or a break in your marketing and PR activities.
