Top 30 Startups From The Nordics/Baltics: Arctic15 Finalists Announced, Your Vote Needed.
The Arctic15:Exit Path conference is just around the corner, and we have our pitching finalists but need your help to narrow down the choice to 15 companies that will attend the main event.
To do so, just vote for your favorite at the bottom of the article, and if you leave your e-mail you will have a chance to win a ticket to Arctic15:Exit Path, The Exits Workshop or one of our T-Shirts. Of course you could get the ticket right away too, as the Early Bird deal expires in less than a week.
The selected startups will get free attendance to the conference and will have the opportunity to pitch in front of our judges and investors. The main prize is over €14 000, but as we have said previously - it is not about the money. For example Harri Kerminen & Timo Ahopelto will be among our judges, together with our top international guests.
There will be over €35 billion worth of VC’s and angels in the room, plenty of media and important guests, and pitching/winning in front of them can be all the exposure you need to finance and start your hockey stick growth.
Don’t take our word for it, our previous Arctic15 pitching competition participants include the likes of: Kiosked, Holvi, The Eye Tribe, 46 Elks, Transfluent, Infogr.am, Ovelin, Pipedrive and more, who have together raised tens of millions of euros.
