Apply for invitation

Are you bored with the same stale startup events, with forgettable meetings with forgettable people in some conference hall? So are we, and that’s why we created Startup Extreme. A Festival designed to create meaningful long lasting relationships between hand picked founders and investors, by sharing experiences in the extreme and beautiful Norwegian nature.
Startup Extreme brings 300 key players from the European and US tech scene to Norway to come discover High Tech Norway and to meet the rising tech stars of the Nordics. In Voss, the extreme sports capital of Norway, our guests will experience breathtaking Norwegian nature while together going through extreme activities.
