Barcamper is touring Skåne in the coming days to seek out innovative and creative business ideas. Presenters of the top 10 ideas on tour will get a chance to take part in an accelerator program and develop their ideas towards an international market.
Barcamper is a project of dPixel, an Italian company focusing on acceleration, advising venture capital funds and helping startups to find investors. Functioning as an office on the road, Barcamper is seeking talented entrepreneurs and interesting ideas in the cultural and creative sectors, such as art, design, media and food. The unique platform holds the promise of a more relaxed and casual environment for idea-pitching than what regular business meetings offer.
Starting out the Swedish tour in Veberöd on 26 April, Barcamper is going to take altogether five stops for pitching events. After Kristiansad, Östra Kärrstorp, Malmö and Helsingborg, the tour arrives to Lund on 30th of April. Startups, small companies and entrepreneurs in the cultural and creative sectors in Southern Sweden can pitch their ideas to a panel of experts in an informal environment.
Participants have 30 minutes for a pitch to the scouting team consisting of dPixel, the Creative Plot and other experts. After the tour, the accelerator will take place at Ideon in late August. The top ten participants will be offered mentorship and coaching along with financial aid for their idea.
