Project information

The Icelandic international business plan competition was a unique project particularly designed for Iceland after the financial and banking crisis in 2008.
Key points were to address not only the challenges after the crisis, but to have an adjusted BP format right in place for the Icelandic start-up ecosystem.
Its features were all carefully considered to leverage Icelandic –international start-ups beyond the problems related to Iceland’s geo location and its resources.

The project ended in 2013.

If you are interested to learn more about the particular features of a modern, accelerating business plan concept, contact us or the project consultant for the startup competition.
