Within the start up community we can argue that unconferences are the “new black”. The second edition of the unconference Camp Ven will take place 16th – 18th of August.
The aim with this unconference is to build interesting, fulfilling personal and professional relationships between people within the Startup community. Together they strive to create a couple of days where people will be surrounded by like-minded, driven and creative individuals in a relaxed, stimulating environment! Therefore the well-picked target group extends from angel investors to lawyers, founders, organisers of happenings connected to this world and other people possessing good start-up information. They believe that this unpretentious way of hanging out, including two nights sleep-over, deepens the human connections in a new way. The place is selected by its symbolic location: an island in between two countries.
Behind Camp Ven we find several important contributors for the start up community in the Nordics:
