Our story

Startup Extreme was created by passionated founders in 2015, with the goal of showcasing the Norwegian startup scene to the world. Seven years on, Norway has a rapidly growing startup ecosystem, Increased international interest, and three new unicorns in 2021 alone.

So we feel that it is now time for Startup Extreme to also evolve and work towards something bigger – a new mission:

To help build a more connected startup ecosystem.

We believe that true connections don’t happen in office meeting rooms, on video calls, or at traditional events and conferences; but when people are put in situations that allow them to be real, authentic, and a little outside of their comfort zones. So what better arena to meet upcoming startup founders, eager investors, and curious corporations, who all share a passion for the startup ecosystem?

We are all about the startup community and developing bonds that go deep — natural connections that are almost spiritual. Essentially we — being a startup ourselves — build events that we’d love to attend.

"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"

"One of the best tech events to attend in June - 2018"

"Startup Extreme sported the perfect mix of activity and downtime to give its participants an opportunity to have the sort of deep conversations that makes this type of event worth while"
