Five companies participated in the nine-day long event in Silicon Valley. The participants had three full days with “pitch” sessions, feedback from and networking with local entrepreneurs, investors and advisors. There was an extra “pitch” coach session to prepare specifically for TechCrunch Disrupt. This preparation ended up with three days at TechCrunch Disrupt. The companies also had one day of programs with other Nordic start-ups, including panels with Nordic entrepreneurs and investors and, again, a networking opportunity.
At the end of the event there were two more networking events organized around the needs of the specific participants – one involving the Danish Minister of Business & Economics, Henrik Sass Larsen, and one final “pitch” event — where the participants along with approximately ten other Nordic start-ups were given the opportunity to” pitch” in front of a large audience in San Francisco.
