Ásbrú Enterprise Park in Iceland will be hosting the first ever Startup Iceland conference on May 30th 2012 in its Andrew’s Theater near Keflavík International Airport. Keynote speakers include, amongst others, venture capital investors, investors of Farmville, and Brad Burnham of Union Square Ventures, who invested in companies like Twitter, Foursquare and Tumblr.
“Iceland is a fantastic place to launch a startup let alone a conference to bring the global startup community together. It has excellent infrastructure, a history of innovation and entrepreneurship, as well as a young, well-educated workforce. Iceland is small, which allows for faster pivots and enables validation of Minimum Viable Products— unique traits that we intend to use as a case study for other communities during our first ever Startup Iceland Conference,” commented Bala Kamallakharan, the Founder of Startup Iceland and Investor.
The Startup Iceland conference endeavors to strengthen Iceland’s global influence and create a confluence of global entrepreneurship and business innovation to foster sustainable start-up ecosystems worldwide. The international event will bring together entrepreneurs, investors and dignitaries from startup communities all around the world.
Speakers at the event will represent startup communities from Iceland, the U.S., Canada, Europe, the UK, Asia, Scandinavia, South Africa just to name a few. Amongst others, speakers include Brad Burnham, Founder, Union Square Ventures; Brad Feld, Managing Partner, Foundry Group; Gunnar Hólmsteinn, CEO, CLARA; Eirikur Hrafnsson, CEO, GreenQloud; Rebeca Hwang, CEO, younoodle, and Hilmar B. Janusson, EVP of R&D.
Topics to be discussed at the one-day event include Iceland’s entrepreneurial successes and challenges, how to create localised dealmakers to activate successful regional entrepreneurism, the significance of seed funding and determining the best financial opportunities, Boulder Colorado’s transition from college town to Startup Tech hub, New York’s claim on Silicon Valley’s entrepreneurial reign, innovations in energy efficiency and utilizing renewable resources, the new ‘Entrepreneurial Renaissance’ and leveraging social entrepreneurs to propel brands.
