Start up Iceland Conference

Icelandic and American entrepreneurs share many traits, such as creativity, tenacity, adaptability, and a practical operational mind-set. This is particularly evident when one surveys Icelandic firms which have found the U.S. a rich environment for growth and additional opportunities. This is the main reason why our Embassy is supporting the Start Up Iceland Conference at Ásbrú. By bringing some of the top entrepreneurial minds in the U.S., such as Brad Feld and Brad Burnham, some high-tech experts, and a few up and coming entrepreneurs from the U.S. and other countries, we know that young Icelandic entrepreneurs and their American counterparts will receive encouragement, additional ideas, and the motivation to succeed in the future.
