Previous participants say..

"Creative Startups Roundtable is a great platform to reach out to industry experts, expand our network and get feedback from potential new investors. During the investor meetings, we got the chance to do a ‘deep dive’ in our solution, and received some good forward-thinking questions towards what we should focus on."

CHRISTOFFER RISENG

CEO and Founder of RQST

"We qualified to be among the top companies that won a close dialogue with two investors, and that was when the real fun started: Acorn Capital’s Magnus Forsnes Krogstad and Virginia Vegas from Startup Norway addressed almost every aspect of our company and initiated very exciting thoughts on everything from pricing and sales models to future technology visions"

CHRISTIAN RUUD

CEO and Founder of Songpark
