What is Startup Summer?

 

Startup Summer is an intensive 2 week accelerator program for early stage startups to kickstart their business. It is aimed at young entrepreneurs that has started or wants to start a business. They bring in great ideas, a kickass team and lots of energy and will get the chance to validate their concept and understand the customer’s problems, learn through masterclasses and connect with other aspiring entrepreneurs.

 

The teams will get their hands dirty in product development and customer development, be mentored by experts in lean startup, business models, finance as well as pitching and presentation skills, and will get other valuable resources. They will also get access to the increasingly vibrant Norwegian startup ecosystem. And last but not least, partying will also be part of it!

 

The program will end with a demo-day presentation and pitch in front of mentors and investors, which is an incredible  opportunity for the attendees. 

 

Some alumna from previous Startup Summer are now established startups such as Edgefolio, Rendra, and Hoopla.

 

This year Startup Norway, will organise Startup Summer from July 28th until August 8th. It will take place at Forskningsparken, Blindern.
