In addition to that Arctic15 organizes ad-hoc meetings on the spot, speed dating sessions and press events for journalists.
Arctic15 is the optimal size. It brings together 450+ startups, 300+ investors, 150+ corporates and media from 60+ countries. 100+ speakers are joining the event – tech influencers, investors and entrepreneurs from all over the world.
One of the major highlights is the Arctic15 Funding Program, aimed at connecting startups and angel investors for smart cross-border investments. The program begins in February and culminates at Arctic15 with a deal announcement on stage. The Program is organized together with FiBAN and the Nordic Angel Program.
