Sting Day is an exclusive, invitation-only event for 400 carefully selected guests. In 2019 they celebrated a significant 10-year anniversary with their biggest feature of startups from various sectors (i.e. Health, Fintech, e-Commerce, Gaming, Deeptech and Sustainability) as well as Investors from over 15 countries. Sting Day powers the highest quality of networking in Scandinavia and we’re grateful and honoured to be their partners for the last few years (and beyond).

To facilitate relevant and meaningful matches between Investors and Startups for the purpose of investment, advisory, partnership, collaboration, growth and innovation. Through the editions, Sting Day has developed a reputation of ensuring only the most promising startups and relevant investors attend for top-level networking.

(Data Analytics Provider, Start-Up)
Good content, interesting companies, efficient way of meeting (startup) companies briefly, discussing with them at their stand, as well as bumping in to (other) Investors. I would love to be back next year!

Relevant people, relevant matches, well organised and high positive energy. Thank you Sting Day. You were definitely the highlight of my week.
