Startups: Here's What You Should Know About The Arctic15

    No one gets anything out of a stuffy conference, so we designed this year’s Arctic15 to provide a ton of real-world value for founders, CEOs, and C-level executives. We added a whole extra day for just founders and investors, and tailored that day’s speakers to provide practical value and start good conversations for those attending. The second day should really pop as well, as the whole community will be in attendance, the Arctic15 startup competition will be going on, and we’ll have more amazing speakers onstage.

    There’s a couple different ways to get into the conference, so here’s what you need to know about tickets, demo stands, and the startup competition (application deadline is coming soon!):

    Tickets:
    If you are a founder, entrepreneur or a C-level executive, we encourage you to put in a quick application to the invite-only, exclusive first day event. It will be worth it. The ticket price is €250 for two days of action.

    Demo Booths
    Another way to get some tickets to the event is to get a Demo Booth. They are available for €750 and it includes a 2×2 metre spot at the venue with electricity, wireless internet connection, visibility on the partner page with a logo and company description. Demo booths are available for the second day only, but demo booth tickets will entitle you to enter the first day event as well.

    To pick out your spot before the rest are taken up, get in touch with us by emailing info(a)arcticstartup.com
