So you may have heard that we are organizing a conference called Arctic15:Exit Path on the 27th-28th of May in Helsinki. The question is why? Not just why are we organizing our conference, but why should you go to conferences in general and Arctic15 specifically.
Our team has been to over 100 conferences/events in the past couple of years, and in the process we have learned a few key points on why you should attend them and how to make the most out of it. In the process we have identified a few key points about good events:
So based on that, we wanted to create an event, which is focused on value. We also wanted to help people understand that they need to network and meet people. So with that, we created The Exit Path – a conference structure that makes sense.
The main stage agenda will go through the general lifecycle of the company, so you will know which keynotes to listen to and which ones to spend networking. Ideally and at any conference, you should listen to 2-3 keynotes and actually get a return on your investment during the rest of the time through meeting key people. We know that, and we built the conference around that. We still have amazing speakers, you can check them out here.
We also want to enable multiple meetings for everyone. This includes speed dating & matchmaking with investors, 1-on-1 meetings with speakers, co-founder speed-dating and a lot more. The matchmaking will include speed-dating to get acquainted and longer meetings as follow ups. This will allow you to start talking about actions earlier, as you will have two meetings instead of one.
Finally, we want the right people in the room, so we are not compromising on quality and want to have a smaller size event with the right people there, so that every person you bump into will have a higher chance of being your next key partner/connection/investment/investor.
