Virtual event

About this event

Startup scene is exploding as entrepreneurship & impact take the center-stage as the forces for positive change in the world.

As this happens, naturally we are seeing an increasing complexity in the startup ecosystems across the world. Today, more than ever before, there is a need for entrepreneurs to navigate and connect with different startup scenes across the world so that they can build truly global solutions.

Welcome to a fireside chat with Sissel Hansen, Founder & CEO of Startup Guide, a publishing and media company that simplifies ecosystem connections for startups, globally.

In this fireside chat we discuss:

⭐️ Is there a limit to "dreaming big" as an entrepreneur?

⭐️ As an entrepreneur, how can you harness global resources around your startup idea?

⭐️ What ecosystem information is critical to have as a founder to build a startup? 

⭐️ What are some sticky problems that are common across startup ecosystems in the world - how are Nordics similar to or different from the rest of the world?

⭐️ Can you just move and start a business anywhere - is the digital nomad model something that works for startup founders?

⭐️ Is the experience of building an "ecosystem startup" like Startup Guide different from that of building a "traditional tech" startup?

⭐️ What are plans for Startup Guide going forward?

⭐️ Audience Q&A and open-mic!

The discussion will be moderated by Naimul Abd, Business Advisor & Partnerships Lead at Coompanion Stockholm, serial impact entrepreneur, Regional Director Nordics at the Founder Institute, and Director Startup Grind Stockholm.
