Arctic15 is the most effective matchmaking startup event in the Nordics and Baltics taking place in Helsinki, Finland on 30-31 May 2018. The 2-day event is organized by ArcticStartup, a leading startup media covering Nordics and Baltics.
The focus is on making deals and quality networking. There are 15 Tracks from Health and Fintech to AI and Talent. Industry players can use the time efficiently and gather under one roof. The core of it all is one-on-one meetings in Deal Room with pre-screened contacts. Networking is optimized to the absolute maximum with Pre-Event Matchmaking, Ad-Hoc Meetings, Networking Areas, Side Events, Workshops and Roundtables.
Arctic15 gets its name from the Pitching Competition that makes the centerpiece of the conference, in which the TOP 15 early-stage startups from the Nordics and Baltics compete for a 50 000 euro syndication deal from the Finnish Business Angels Network (FIBAN).

To date, Arctic15 finalists have raised a total of 120 million euros.
