for all attendees

Get to know your fellow comrades with an informal meet & greet session upon arrival at the Summit in Voss. 

Throughout your time in Voss, we have designed some selective speed dating sessions for those of you should definitely be matched. 

Come to these sessions with a willingness to learn & at the very least your phone to swap details! 

This will involve:

- 3 minute meetings to get to know other attendees
- Asking "make or break" questions
- Deciding whether you'd like to book a meeting with your speed date


for all attendees

We listened to our past attendees who asked for more time dedicated to networking:

This year, we have collaborated with DealRoom to rocket-launch the extreme networking experience to a whole new level. 

DealRoom is the the ultimate social & strategical platform for Startup Extreme.

More information coming soon!

At the summit we fulfill our mantra of "Networking the Norwegian Way" to its fullest.

By going on a trip together, sharing a bus ride, living in cabins with soon to be friends, rafting down a frothy river, hanging out in the tipi camp, eating burned sheep head, making breakfast together and many many meetings with startups, investors, partners and media.

Extreme Sport Activities

Needless to say more - Extreme Sport Activities is a big part of Startup Extreme. Network with your next investor while rafting down a frothy river. It might sound like insanity, however, Norwegians know that true relationships are not build by sharing business cards in a hotel conference.
