On Thursday the 22nd of May the Silicon Vikings Copenhagen Chapter will be hosting the first event in an event series centred around succeeding in the Silicon Valley. They will be introducing it as an alternative to the Copenhagen startup environment. Attendees will be able to examine their possibilities and resolve whether venturing to the Silicon Valley would be beneficial for their startup. The reality of experiences in the Silicon Valley will be discussed, as it has been established that it is not always the right choice for everyone. With two years of experience with helping startups under their belt, Silicon Vikings Copenhagen will be taking a slightly alternative approach to this event series. They recognise that while the Silicon Valley provides an immense wealth of opportunities for some, others can however find some success elsewhere.

Silicon Vikings Silicon Valley expert Mette-Lise Vraa will be the primary speaker holding numerous talks to guide the attendants through making the decision of approaching Silicon Valley.

Topics for this event:

  1. Our regions startup ecosystem vs. Silicon Valley startup ecosystem
  2. What are they actually good at in Silicon Valley?
  3. What are we actually good at here?
  4. How can you combine (2) and (3) to get the best?
  5. 5 entrepreneurs from Silicon Valley give their best advice
