In this panel the #xNordics crew opens it all up about the success of startups coming from the Nordics, Finland, Sweden and Norway. This is yet another SXSW channel for the Nordic startups to pitch, not only to investors but to like-minded people within the industry. Idea is to open up what we put into our morning porridge or Sauna beers to create the startup ecosytem and innovative lifestyle .The session will be active and interactive, with amazing success stories of Nordic Startupss (Rovio, WeVideo, Spotify…) and enablers (Aalto Innovation University, Innovation Norway, Stockholm Chamber of Commerce, Sweden Mobile Association, Mobile Monday, MESH, FinnMob, Finpro and alikes) - and mix and match very innovative people telling stories, sharing experiences and coaching others while opening it all up. We want to make this session interactive and have conversations with the audience too! Funny accents guaranteed! ;)
