What is Startup Iceland?

Our agenda is to build an antifragile entrepreneurial ecosystem through best practice tools,resources and advice for Iceland.

How do we build sustainable entrepreneurial ecosystems?

We are sure every country, city and town is asking this question given the devastation the financial crisis of 2008 has left on the world economies. History has shown that founders and entrepreneurs are builders and creators of valuable resources for their communities. Small entrepreneurial companies create more productive jobs than large companies, and productive jobs are the economic engine of every society.

With that background we asked ourselves, are there best practices, methods and learning strategies that we could apply in our community here in Iceland?

We at Techstars believe that people should be able to build their global businesses from where ever they live.
