5 December 10:00 - 15:00Odd Fellow Palace

Meet the best of the Nordics

All finalists of Nordic Startup Awards are invited to take part in this event held in the center of Copenhagen, at the amazing Odd Fellow Palace

We have invited relevant stakeholders from all Nordic countries to join us and to mingle with our superstar finalists. Around the theme “scaling” we have planned interesting panels (consisting of NSAwards stakeholders) and matchmaking with our partners. It will be quality over quantity with only limited available tickets

We will schedule the entire day for you to ensure that you will meet as many relevant people as possible through a predefined meeting plan. Who will be there:

  • Startups
  • Investors
  • Companies/Corporates
  • Ecosystem Stakeholders
  • Government

As a Nordic stakeholder, this is an important opportunity for you to build new business relationships across the Nordic borders. Furthermore, you will also get the chance to meet stakeholders from the other regions under www.globalstartupawards.com

We will provide breakfast, lunch and coffee on the day.


After the breakfast we kick off with the panels. There will be three different topics related to scaling running in parallel in two rounds. 

  • Panel 1: The organisational challenges of scaling (culture, vision, talent, product development).
  • Panel 2: The financial and legal challenges of scaling (raising money, cashflow, burn-rate, contracts).
  • Panel 3: The challenges of scaling into a new market (market selection, product fit, marketing, local culture, sales people).

Speed matchmaking 

After the panels and a nice lunch, we will start the pre-planned matchmaking with you in the center. We have planned a program for each of you based on your profile and the different tables. You will travel around to the different matchmaking stations in small groups. 

Each station will have 1-2 representatives who will have an offering related to scaling that are based on what the organisations they represent. When you arrive at the station, the representatives will first present themselves and what they can offer. 

Afterwards, you will have time to ask questions. Before you leave the table you will have the chance to leave your contact information if you are interested.
