KLAK – Icelandic Startups and Nova named the 10 teams that advanced to the business accelerator Startup SuperNova 2022 at Kex hostel this evening to the great joy of those present. There has been much anticipation and excitement since the Startup SuperNova Masterclass kicked off last June with 53 applications. The crowd watched when Jónas Óli Jónasson, founder and manager of Stubbs, welcomed everyone to Kex hostel to the great joy of those present, while he reviewed the experience of the team at Startup SuperNova.
Startup SuperNova is a springboard for start-ups and a unique platform for networking with industry players, experienced mentors and entrepreneurs who have key knowledge of the relevant technology or sector. Strong examples from the start-up environment, Controlant and Plaio, can be mentioned here, which have done well after participating in Startup SuperNova.
There is a lot of growth in innovation in Iceland at the moment and the Icelandic market has not been immune to what is happening in the start-up environment. The grassroots has become extremely powerful and KLAK has established itself as a key player in the support environment for innovation in Iceland and has made an effort to be a leading force in the grassroots of the entrepreneurial community. Heavyweight women and men from the business world have been adherents of the startup environment since the beginning, and one of them who knows it well is Guðjón Már Guðjónsson, who is traditionally known as Oz, but he is the chairman of Mindnes, one of the teams that made it to Startup SuperNova.
The accelerator is a joint project between KLAK - Icelandic Startups and Nova, where they strive to build business solutions intended for the international market with proven methodology and KLAK - Icelandic Startups' years of experience in supporting entrepreneurs and start-ups.
The teams that advanced are the following:
