ArcticEveningAt the end of the month just after midsummer, ArcticStartup will be organising an ArcticEvening in Copenhagen, Denmark. The date is set so that it is in the eve of the awesome reboot conference.

We have previously lined up a panel for our events, but since there is so much untapped startup potential in Copenhagen, we decided to set aside the whole evening for startup pitches and those who want to come and meet the startups. So if you’re a startup and would like to receive Nordic wide coverage for your startup – apply for a slot in the evening. Have a look at the guidelines for applying below. Similarly, we’d love to see you if your interested in seeing and meeting a great line up of Nordic startups.

If you haven’t been to ArcticEvenings before, we suggest you take a look at this video. The events are laid back and we’ve received a lot of compliments from organising these in other Nordic cities and now it’s time for Copenhagen.

Venue

The venue for the event is the La Oficina located at Suomisvej 4. The event will begin at 6.30pm.

How do I sign up?

Tickets can be reserved below or directly from Amiando for free as long as they last. Without exceptions, in the past the tickets have ran out extremely fast, so make sure you are here to get your ticket. Make sure you’ll show up at the venue if you reserve a ticket, or you’ll end up on our black list which means there’s no coming to our events in the future. We are able to host the event free of charge for participants due to our wonderful sponsors. Our sponsors are presented below.

Startup pitches

In Copenhagen we have reserved the floor purely for startup pitches. If you would like to come and present your company – drop us an e-mail at info (at) arcticstartup.com and with a few sentences explain what you are doing, in what stage your company is at and why you should be chosen to present at the event. The occasion will be very informal so you don’t need a slide deck nor a demo. We’d just like to hear you tell about your startup to the audience and meet the other entrepreneurs. Unfortunately we can’t guarantee everyone a time slot to present (even though we do our best to fit everyone in), so we will make sure those with the best effort get a chance. Deadline for applications is 18th of June.

We will let you know by 20th June.

Sponsors

Our event is made possible by our Sponsors. Do take time to get to know them – they are one of the most interesting organisations in the industry. We hand pick our sponsors to bring value to the evenings – these guys are truly worth your time.
