On April 22nd, the Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship welcomes you to Startup Day, gathering a thousand university students and startup enthusiasts from Sweden, the Nordics and Europe.

Connect with founders revealing their hard-earned insights. Roll up your sleeves in the workshops. Dive into focus-tracks and into a once-in-a-year crowd of inclusivity and diversity. Blast through a dozen hours then kick back and chill at the afterfest.

Meet across disciplines. Meld new ideas. 

Find the droids you’re looking for.

The Pitch Pit

Look out for the Pitch Pit at Startup Day, an open-mic-style pitching track with a spontaneous chance to listen to other pitches, then a spontaneous chance to pitch your idea or startup, and then a chance to spontaneously judge others! Experience the full circle of the Pitch Pit.

Check back soon to sign up for interactive workshops throughout the day.
