We sent out a note last friday to all those who have participated and supported the Startup Iceland Conference the last 3 years, stating that we have started the planning for Startup Iceland 2015. Here is the email
Yes, we are doing Startup Iceland again. Wow! 4th year, it still feels like a dream for us when we first launched the Startup Iceland Conference in Andrews Theatre in 2012. Thank you for your support and patronage to keep this dream going. We are reaching out to you to request you to participate again in the coming year’s event. We have a special early bird offer of tickets for Startup Iceland 2015. We are assembling a stellar roaster of speakers and mentors for the coming year. Please share with your friends, fellow entrepreneurs and startup founders.
Remember, in order to get one-on-one mentoring sessions with the speakers you need to buy the ticket and participate in the conference. The one-on-one mentoring sessions are scheduled first-come-first served. Looking forward to seeing you again in Startup Iceland 2015.
Happy Holidays and a Prosperous New Year!
We hope you can make it!
The Startup Iceland Team
I cannot imagine how we have been able to get this dream to go on. I continue to believe bringing attention of the world to Iceland as it relates to Startups, Founders and Entrepreneurship is a good thing not just for Iceland but for the entire tribe of Startups, Founders and Entrepreneurs. We are going to do a couple of things different this year. For the first time we are planning to market and invite Startups and Founders from other communities to participate in the Conference. We are working with the Airlines and Hotels to get us good discounted rates. We are as always keep the cost of running the event to the minimum so everyone gets the most bang for their investment in participating in the event.
We are putting together a great roster of speakers and mentors. Very few conferences allow participants to get one-on-one sessions with the speakers to establish connection and get mentoring or just shaking their hand. We want to make that part of the conference. We have a half a day of mentoring after the conference, where every participant has the opportunity to schedule 20 minutes 1-on-1 sessions with all the speakers who participate in the Conference. I think this has been immensely useful for the Startups, Founders and Entrepreneurs who participate in the Conference. We will start marketing the speakers soon. If you want to get in front of the line the best way to do that is to buy your early bird tickets now. The earlier your number the higher are you chances to schedule the 1-on-1s. So what are you waiting for? Buy your tickets now! It would be a great Christmas and New Year present for your team.
