Unique opportunities for startups at TechBBQ
TechBBQ exists to help startups and founders realize and optimize their potential and chances for success. Since 2012, TechBBQ has given its participants an inside look at Danish and Nordic landscape for entrepreneurship, technology, and innovation, and continues to impart valuable lessons for any participant in the worldwide startup ecosystem.
Showcasing & Pitching
Each year, TechBBQ selects about 200 of the best startups to exhibit and pitch on our conference floor within a wide range of focus areas, which we call verticals. Some of this year’s verticals include: Robotics, Impact, Foodtech, Urbantech, Artificial Intelligence, as well as Investor and Startup Services.
TechBBQ continues the success of the last three years with a special focus on attracting and developing talented individuals in tech. This initiative will run under the title Tech Talent. Talent attraction remains one of the biggest challenges for Danish and Nordic companies; as such, TechBBQ will be intensifying its efforts to attract and develop Tech Talent at this year’s event.
Pitching to talent
There will be pitching sessions where startups and partners looking for talents to join their teams will pitch.
At TechBBQ, network meetings and matchmaking between employers and employees will be facilitated in collaboration with Djøf, Prosa, and The Hub, among others.
TechBBQ prioritizes quality over quantity in everything we do. In 2019, TechBBQ will try to move away from the current trends comparing the Nordic ecosystem to places like Silicon Valley. We see great value in building an ecosystem that highlights its own strengths – and weaknesses of course. We want focus on what unique values Nordic entrepreneurs and technological innovators rely on and what barriers our culture might have, in terms of becoming the innovative and technological frontrunners that we aspire to be. In Denmark and the rest of the Nordic countries, we do things our way: #THENORDICWAY.
A Lighthouse in the Nordics
TechBBQ is exists to support and strengthen the Danish ecosystem for entrepreneurship and innovation. We want to make Denmark a lighthouse for technology and innovation in the Nordic region and the rest of Europe.
Larger events with an international format like TechBBQ serve an important purpose for the Danish ecosystem. They create a platform where a critical mass of actors in the form of entrepreneurs, leading tech companies, inspirational leaders, and new talents can meet and share their knowledge and ideas with each other and the rest of the world. An important element for the development of the Danish and Nordic ecosystem is attracting capital for entrepreneurs. I am therefore very proud that TechBBQ hosts the largest annual collection of investors in Denmark.
SEE YOU IN SEPTEMBER!
