17th of October – exclusive founder-investor day
We’ve finetuned our concept a little to enable better networking opportunities between the international investors and Northern European entreprenuers. The first day event will be an exclusive invite-only event for founders, investors, C-level executives as well as our sponsors.
Wednesday the 17th will contain panel discussions and keynotes by some of the most sought out people in the startup industry. The price for the first day is included in the event ticket at €250. As the second day ticket is also €250, consider it a gift from our part where we’re offering you the first day experience free-of-charge.
18th of October
The second day is open to the general public. We will feature two tracks, 80 demo booths and close to 1000 attendees at the event making it a must attend for anyone interested in growth entrepreneurship. 18th of October will also feature the Startup Competition where 15 companies will be on stage pitching for the grand prize.
Arctic15 will be held at the Helsinki Exhibition and Congress Center. This is the same venue we had last time, but we’ve opened up some more space for demo booths and a second hall. The address of the venue is: Messuaukio 1, 00520 Helsinki.
