IT IS TIME FOR YOU TO MEET YOUR FUTURE COWORKERS

How big is the biggest career fair for impact startups in the Nordics right now? Not big enough. 

On the 24th of August 2021, we want to connect the ones who want to do good, with the ones doing good - inspiring people to be part of the solution!

Online, impact startups and +1000 top talents from all over the Nordics will be invited to meet for a day. Connecting in stand-up meetings, 1:1 matchmaking sessions, speaker sessions, and fireside chats.

On this day and during the whole Impact Week, we want to put the spotlight on the ones solving some of the biggest problems of our time - YOU!

Sadly, we cannot fit all startups into the online fair but at least we can squeeze in 200 of you, meaning that the first startups that sign up will get the opportunity to participate in the fair.
