entrepreneurial marketing


Entrepreneurial Marketing is a program designed to give you the skills, tools and mindset to brand, market and sell your products and services in the global marketplace. The program is hands-on, with a mix of learning-days and doing-days, as well as one-on-one meetings with top executives in relevant fields, and evening networking events. At the end of the program, you will have worked through the deliverables from each workshop, and defined clear and relevant goals for the following six months.  

Since 2014, over 50 Nordic tech startups have participated in the Entrepreneurial Marketing program. Experienced mentors, advisors and investors assist in developing the skill-set necessary to attract customers, partners and investors.

The goal is to provide technology startups crucial knowledge and experience to achieve higher growth – and ensure you are prepared to compete internationally.
