“Startup Extreme got us out the door and talking to potential investors and customers. 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. Without it being our focus we got several press articles about our company. These articles has lead to 10+ inbound leads from large potential customers. And to top it off one of the largest VC's in Europe has asked us for a meeting.”
