This year, Arctic15 is going to experiment a bit. We thought about the traditional pitching competition, already a staple of startup events, and decided to turn the concept on its head. Since we are all about fostering valuable connections and getting real deals done, why not use the same principles to create a new way for startups to present their ideas to investors…?
This is how the Arctic15 Funding Program was born. In it, instead of announcing one single winner, we give the opportunity for investors to interact and commit, on the spot, to any of the 15 selected startup projects. In case you’re wondering whether you understood the idea correctly, yes, our goal is to create a setting in which everybody wins.
But now, the reason why everybody is here: it’s time to announce our TOP 15 Nordic/Baltic Startups. Here we go!
