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 entrepreneurs are builders and creators of valuable resources for their communities. Small entrepreneurial companies create more jobs than large companies, and 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? Are there examples of entrepreneurs who have solved this challenge, or tried and failed? How can we learn from this experience?
We offer a unique first-come-first-served one-on-one mentoring session for anyone who buys a ticket to the event to meet with all the speakers and mentors who come to Startup Iceland.
