ArcticEvening, the event we organise in the biggest cities of the Nordic and Baltic region, is coming to Copenhagen on the 24th of June. The date is set for the eve of the wonderful reboot conference. The venue for the evening is the La Oficina pub at Suomisvej 4. Doors will open at 6.30pm.

Just as before, tickets to ArcticEvening events have sold out extremely fast since they are free – and so will they this time. Remember, reboot is held the next day so there will be a lot of people around. We’ll open up the ticket sales on the morning of June 18th 16th 9am Danish time (UTC+2). Make sure come reserve your ticket fast when the ticket sales open. You’re probably wondering what we have lined up for you?

We have gone to an all presentation evening this time with the Danish crowd. We are organising this event in co-operation with the reboot people and we decided that it’s about time we gave the Danish startups a chance to pitch their companies to the world and get some well deserved visibility. So, if you’re a startup and want to apply – send in a very simple application to info (at) arcticstartup.com with the following information; a few sentences explaining what you are doing, in what stage your company is at and why you should be chosen to pitch at the event. The deadline for these applications is June 16th 18th. The startups that will be able to present at the event, will be notified by June 18th 20th the latest. Remember, we’ll give all the startups presenting at the event quite a bit of visibility here so make sure you apply!

Make a note that if you have a startup, we’d like you to apply regardless of whether you’re looking for financing. We only want to create visibility for good startups, so let us know. It’s not a VC pitch, but rather a presentation on what your startup is working on.

Like before – our event has been made possible by our hand picked sponsors who bring value to our events and the people present. Please take a minute to get to know them better.
