"We´ve unsuccessfully been trying to capture in words how amazing this was, and how incredibly happy we are that all the months and even years of hard work have paid off, 

So we thought; why bother when we instead can quote Robin Wauters of Tech.eu:

“I lived the dream, I went to Startup Extreme”

Hjernen på natur!

Hjernen på natur!

Naturen er den beste produktivitetshacken.

 

Om kun noen få dager drar en gruppe utvalgte startups, investorer og media til Voss, der dagene blir brukt ute i naturen, enten du velger kajakk, rafting eller fjelltur.

- Dette er det eneste arrangementet av sitt slag i Norge, sier Maja Adriaensen, leder for

Startup Norway som arrangerer summiten. - I fjor samlet vi 180 deltagere, nordiske

startups, internasjonale investorer og media for ekstreme opplevelser i vill natur. Målet

vårt var å skape sterke relasjoner mellom investorer og innovatører og media, gjennom

opplevelser og aktiviteter.

 

For mange businessmøter skjer over en kopp kaffe, på et kontor, i et forretningsbygg, i en by.

Det er ganske annerledes å pitche ideen sin i raftingflåten ned elvestryk, eller diskutere metrics

over et smalahoved.

- Å dele slike opplevelser gjør noe med deltagerne, og skaper bånd som varer, sier

Adriaensen. - Gode relasjoner er utrolig viktig i startup-økosystemet, her blir man kjent

på en helt annen måte.

 

Tilbakemeldingene fra fjorårets deltagere var overveldende positive. Den anerkjente tech-

journalisten Robin Wauters fra tech.eu oppsummerte fjorårets event sånn: It’s hard to capture in

words how amazing this inaugural event was. Even calling it an event seems out of

place; ‘experience’ hits much closer to home.

 

“Was it the fjord-kayaking, paragliding, wild river rafting, glacier skiing and other
‘extreme activities’ the Startup Extreme attendees were treated to? Was it the
authentic meals (yes, including halved, torched sheep heads) they were served? Was it
staying in lovely cabins up in the mountains with a spectacular view, often sharing the
space with complete strangers who inevitably became friends? Was it the stupefyingly
amazing train ride from Voss back to Oslo and its international airport?”

 

Villmarksliv og ekstremsport setter rammen rundt arrangementet, og å være ute i naturen gjør

noe med oss. Men hva? Hva skjer egentlig med hjernen når du er i naturen?

Er du ikke produktiv her får du problemer

Er du ikke produktiv her får du problemer

Du får økt fokus.

Bymiljøer kjennetegnes av at mye skjer, mennesker, trafikk, gateliv, hektisk tempo. Dette blir

distraksjoner for hjernen, som påvirker de områdene som kontrollerer oppmerksomhet og selv-

kontroll. Å komme seg ut i åpne landskap kan være motvekt mot dette, her opplever man økt

fokus og ro.

Nettverking, nettverking, nettverking. Padling.

Nettverking, nettverking, nettverking. Padling.

Du blir mindre stresset

Forskning viser at å være i naturen kan senke blodtrykket, og bidrar til økt velvære, sånn

generelt. En mindre studie fra the journal Landscape and Urban Planning fant at mennesker

som bor i områder med mye grønt hadde lavere nivå av kortisol, et hormon man forbinder med

stress.

Du vet når ideene bare flyr avgårde? Akkurat sånn.

Du vet når ideene bare flyr avgårde? Akkurat sånn.

Du blir mer kreativ.

Fargen grønn, som er ganske prevalent på Voss nå på våren, kan gjøre deg mer oppfinnsom, i

følge en studie fra 2012.

Naturens beste powerpointpresentasjon

Naturens beste powerpointpresentasjon

Du føler deg mer levende.

Klisje, kanskje - men også støttet av forskning. En studie fra 2010 fant at å tilbringe tid utendørs

gjør deg lykkeligere og gir deg energi - både fysisk og psykisk.

Slik takler du motgang

Slik takler du motgang

Du utvikler deg

Eventyrlyst ligger menneskers natur, vi søker nye opplevelser for potensiell gevinst. Å prøve

noe nytt skaper i tillegg nye synaptiske forbindelser i hjernen, du utvikler deg rett og slett. Enten

det er gjennom adrenalinkicket man får av rafting eller flyten man opplever på Stand-Up- Paddle.

Why Funded Startups Die

Why Funded Startups Die

This is a guest post by Natalia Brzozowska - PhD and Business Tech Consultan in Espeo Software. Espeo Software is a partner of Startup Extreme.

The Internet is filled with heart-rending startup post-mortems. Naturally, you’ve got to fail, as a certain startup investor once told us. But we’re guessing you’d rather see your business survive than post inspirational quotes and thank the world for ‘blessing you with challenges’. We’re going to look at the top reasons for startup failure, focusing on venture-backed startups. We’ll also add some preventive care tips from startup investor and founder Jussi Hakunti.

 

The funding’s not really a huge problem. Wait, what?

The most commonly cited reason for startup failure (42%) is no market need for a product. Usually, it’s the classic product/market fit issue. Startups should be very flexible to make changes and to learn from problems and failures. Startuppers often resist pivoting, and making the right adjustments after setbacks. As consultants, we’ve met startup CEOs who badly wanted to develop a project we saw no future for. Market mismatch? No uniqueness whatsoever? Let’s just say we’d be apprehensive about putting our devs to work on something like that.

“The funding itself is not a problem”, says Jussi. “You need to understand that even though you have funding, if your original business idea is not doing well, you need to be transparent about it”. Be honest to your investors and say: this is not going to fly, we need to do something. “Companies often fight too long to understand that this situation is something they cannot fix anymore. They’re burning more money on a product or idea that doesn’t work”.

 

‘Well, that escalated quickly…’, or execution

The issues start popping up. A dip in engagement. Suddenly, people are opening your million-dollar-idea app and exiting it within seconds. You get comments from customers not being able to find what they want. There are scalability issues that come when you become unable to support growth. And there are bugs. Lots of bugs. What we’ve also noted when advising startups is their unwillingness to pay attention to the quality of their earlier code. Startups sometimes recoil from changes, thinking cleaning up their bad code is an unnecessary cost. We’ll be blunt – if you don’t rewrite your crap code, you’ll bury your product (you can be sure we’ll deal with that in another article).

Three things worth remembering at this point:

●      Ideas – or market fit – are worthless without execution.

●      Execution can also correct an initially so-so idea.

●      You may not be the first to do something – but you can be the first one to do it right.

 

The product’s just as strong as the team

If you’re the entrepreneur you can get carried away with your brilliant idea. That’s great. This is also why you’re doing this in the first place. But running a business and developing a product can be two different things. There are things which are harder to anticipate, especially if you’re not a pro developer yourself. These include scalability, integrating with new, more efficient technologies, dealing with overloads due to an unexpected number of users. Because if your product is poor, someone on your team is to blame.

And here we’re onto another major problem and cause of startup failure: bad team. It’s the third-most-cited reason that sends startups packing. In a survey carried out by tech blog ArcticStartup and CoFoundermagazine, 37% founders stated that getting the right team together is the biggest challenge.

Sure, startup life can be draining. Your team can get stressed, and then they can’t perform that well any more, they start seeing too many risks… When the stress levels get high, team members start seeing problems with the others on the team. “You didn’t make this decision, or you made the wrong one and now we’re in deep shit here”. Your team members can sink the startup if they begin to fight. The biggest problem, according to Jussi, is that by that time “the focus is somewhere else – not on taking the product out there and making it functional”.

 

But what about the devs??

Naturally, a tech startup also has developers to worry about. Hire? Hire who? Get remote devs? Here’s what Jussi tells us:

●      People just joining the startup – especially an early-stage one – don’t join for the salary. Startups don’t really pay huge salaries – they try to generate a good environment for the team members to grow. That, of course, changes once you have funding. Some great people don’t necessarily want much to do with the startup, they just want to get a good salary. They may like working there because of the challenges, but they are also evaluating their time that they spent with the company: could the other startup be paying me more now?

●      Partly because of my earlier experiences. I wanted to avoid having a big local team, which would make us start operating like a big company with all the limitations and responsibilities, more funding, better workspace. Whenever things get worse, or you need some extra time to develop your ideas, you still need to pay some salaries to the hired guys. That happens even if you don’t have any idea how to use them and they are just sitting there at the office.

●      In the case of a remote team, you just specify the task and pay for the task done. Once the task is done you may need some extra time to see how things are moving forward. Then, if you have clear plans on the next step you can start to spend money again. When you have your own employees, then you just have to pay them. Even if there is nothing to do. If you don’t have any real job for them to do, you are practically wasting time and money. So, do you release these guys? It’s not easy to do that to somebody.

Product/market fit (and refusing to pivot), a bad product and a team that pulls you down – these are the top sins we’ve identified. What are your thoughts on startup failure?

The 8 worst things you can say to an investor

The 8 worst things you can say to an investor

We talked to a handful of investors investing in Nordic startups about what they think are the worst things you can say to an investor if you are a startup. Here is what they had to say:

How we justified spending 3 days on a conference

How we justified spending 3 days on a conference

As a startup there is an event or conference you can attend for every day of the week. As most startups we are trying to be conscious of our time and join events and conferences we think we can benefit from in terms of customers, hiring, attention, valuable connections or learning.

The CEO of Innovation Norway is coming, are you?

The CEO of Innovation Norway is coming, are you?

Our next guest is one of the most respected opinion leaders within tech and innovation in Norway, and also one of the most inspiring people we´ve ever met.

Anita Krohn Traaseth is the CEO of Innovation Norway, the Norwegian Government's most important instrument for innovation and development of Norwegian enterprises and industry.

With her energy and positive yes, we can- attitude she has contributed in making Innovation Norway more visible and making them an important voice in the ongoing discussions on the restructuring of Norwegian industry.

With innovation and entrepreneurship becoming a key national issue with the falling oil price, and the consequence this has had on a lot of industries, Anita has taking a front positon in voicing how we can increase our chances of finding new industries that can support our society in the future. She is not afraid to say her mind which has helped open deeper discussions on topics that are often shied away from.

Having been named as one of the top 50 most inspirational women in European tech in 2016, we cannot wait to have her joining us in June.

We had several positive investor meetings, and feel confident we will take onboard at least one of these investors. We got our product in front of some of the largest companies in Norway - and are in discussions with two customers we met while at Startup Extreme.

2 good reasons to go to Startup Extreme

2 good reasons to go to Startup Extreme

Want to know how to piss off a VC? Jason Ball is coming to Startup Extreme to tell you.

Jason is Managing Director of Qualcomm Ventures Europe, focusing mainly on software and services. He led the team's investments in Arteris (acquired by Qualcomm), We7 (acquired by Tesco Plc.) and Videoplaza (acquired by Telstra). Other recent deals he's managed include Blippar, BitBar, Grand Cru, Fon, Peak, Wrapp and Yplan.

Prior to joining Qualcomm Ventures, Jason was an investment director at London Seed Capital, an early stage VC fund, where he focused on internet technology investments. He holds a BS in Chemistry from Mississippi College and an MBA from ESADE.

Two quick obvious but often forgotten tips from Jason

1. You are running a marathon. You don’t sprint through a marathon and you shouldn’t sprint through a startup.

2. You better look out for yourself. If you are the CEO or the founder of a company, there are a lot of people depending on you. You are the sun in the solar system.

Jason Ball/ Neil Murray

Neil S W Murray is the Founding Editor of The Nordic Web, the number one resource for data-driven analysis on the Nordic startup scene, as well as being a contributor at Tech.eu. His groundbreaking analysis of the state of the Nordic startup scene has won him both Awards and international recognition, and has led to increased attention being paid to the Nordics.

This man has an overview of all investors who has invested in the Nordic the last years, and can tell you which one you should be talking to. Neil have also predicted that the Nordics will surpass London in terms of venture capital raised within 2 years.At Startup Extreme he will talk more about the Nordic numbers.

If you cannot wait until June, here is a taste from last year, with Neil talking about why Norway need Startup Extreme.

The 2 first speakers!

The 2 first speakers!

We are stoked, thrilled and everything in between to present the first 2 speakers of Startup Extreme Conference!

First out is Angela Lee, investor, educator & entrepreneur from NY.  As Assistant Dean at Columbia Business School, Angela is a highly rated professor of strategy, leadership and entrepreneurship.  She is also the founder of 37 Angels, an angel network that invests in early stage startups and activates new female angels through a month long investing bootcamp.  

Her tip for any angel-in-training: 

“Look at at least 50 deals before you invest in one. You can invest in one of the first 50 you see – just make sure you’ve looked at 49 others before you write that first check!”

 

Angela is a sought-after expert on CNBC, Bloomberg TV, and Fox Business and is regularly featured in media outlets such as Forbes, Huffington Post, and Fast Company. Entrepreneur Magazine recognized Angela as one of Six Innovative Women to Watch in 2015.

Angela will be giving her lecture on Portfolio diversification in the Startup Investing-track.

 


Looking to scale to the US?

Then New York-based Swede Carl Waldekranz is the guy to talk to.
The co-founder and CEO of Tictail - a mobile-first, DIY e-commerce platform, allowing indie boutiques to set up online stores easily and quickly, has raised over $32.5 million for Tictail, earning him the title one of 30 under 30 2016 in the prestigous Forbes-magazine.

Since the launch 3 years ago Tictail has become the home to 100K brands from all over the world, and they even launched their first physical store in NY.  

So young, achieved so much and this is not even his first venture! His entrepreneursial career started straight out of high school. Together with a friend he started a boutique design agency which acquired clients such as Spotify and Nokia. 3 years after the start the agency was acquired by, at the time, Sweden’s biggest brand development agency Identity Works.

 

That´s just the two first speakers. Excited to meet them? We certainly are!

The ones that made it possible

The ones that made it possible

What would Startup Extreme be without sponsors?

We have the vision and (extreme) ideas, but without our partners bringing both experience and money(let´s be honest), Startup Extreme could never have happened.

 

But not just any partners.

Our goal is to help Nordic startups succeed and put Norway on the International startup map. For that we need to team up with the most innovative organisations and companies. Those that have a strategic plan to help strengthen the Nordic Startup scene and enable Nordic Startups to scale, and who believe that some craziness is needed to get there.

For let´s face it. It takes some craziness in order to go all in when someone pitch you an idea about bringing international investors and media to come meet Nordic startups and do extreme sports in Voss, Norway.

Some said no. But some said “ok, let´s do it”. And for that we are eternally grateful. Without these companies taking the chance on this, Startup Extreme would never have happened.

 

And when we contacted them again for Startup Extreme 2016, and told them we wanted to do it again, but this time make the Conference in Bergen June 15 even bigger and better, they said “Let´s do it!”.

Thank you to Innovasjon Norge, BTO, Nyskapingsparken, Highsoft and StartupLab for doing this with us again!
