Polar Bear Pitching

“We won’t leave you cold!”
This is what we tell participants before they take the plunge into the frozen Baltic Sea. From the most innovative city in Northern Finland, comes the most innovative startup event in the world.
Polar Bear Pitching is a unique and somewhat crazy startup event organised in Oulu, Finland on February, 6-7th. It is an ice-breaking event offering startups literally the coolest possible stage for pitching – a hole cut through the ice in the frozen Baltic Sea. Besides that, Polar Bear Pitching offers world-class workshops and talks that will inspire you to aim even higher.
At Polar Bear Pitching you get the chance to meet founders of the next unicorns as they are stepping out of their comfort zones as well as investors and entrepreneurs with media, speakers and influencers from all over the world. This year the program features Stephan Reckie, John Meewella, Kimberly Larsen, Dean DiNardi, Dmitri Sarle and more. That is not to mention featured startups, whose teams will showcase their fearless attitude and will be livestreamed to Polar Bear global audience. The winners will get 10 000 € in cash, a trip to China’s Mini Silicon Valley (Nanjing), a personalized video of your performance and own handcrafted longboard from Jalla Board.
