The long awaited Startup Weekend Aarhus 2016 has finally started! People from all over the world have gathered at Navitas to share knowledge and experiences.

During the networking session, participants get the chance to know each other through mix and matching ideas and cross border experiences. Two leading entrepreneurs were invited as speakers to motivate the participants and share insiders’ do’s and don’ts. Nicolaj Bang, the CEO of a startup called Global Coin, is explaining his idea and all the pivot points encountered in order to solve the foreign currency change problem. Adrien Solgaard presents his million-dollar idea that started this year and already has a product on the market.

After a well-deserved tasty dinner, games are used not only to break the ice but also to ignite creativity and cooperation. Ideas are offered a chance for materialization during the pitching session regardless of how crazy they might be. All ideas are welcomed.

Vegard, from Norway, an experienced entrepreneur, psychologist and computer scientist is here to host the event and guide the participants to follow through their ideas.

Armed with the right attitude and all the support needed, ahead we go! #SWAAR #AARsome
