The Golden Egg's most crowded science tour in Gróska

More than 700 university students attended the Golden Egg Science Tour in Gróska and became the country's largest scientific tour to date, as far as is known. Gulleggið, the country's largest and oldest entrepreneurial competition managed KLAK – Icelandic Startups is now taking place for the 16th time, but well-known companies that have taken their first steps in the Golden Egg include Controlant, Meniga, PayAnalytics and Solid Clouds. 

The main sponsor of Gullegginn is Landsbankinn, which has participated in the project from the beginning, and other sponsors include the City of Reykjavík, HVIN, Marel, Origo, Advania, KPMG, Frumtak, Controlant, Iðunn, Rarik, Ölgerðin, Vörður, Intellectual Property Office, Promote Iceland, the Technical Development Fund as well as the University of Iceland and Reykjavík University. The big trumpets were blown when sumptuous and prominent sponsor promotional booths were set up on Grwish's pedestrian street, but at its peak, it was difficult to get a foot between stalls because of college students. 

Fewer people were able to get in than wanted in Gróska's auditorium when Kristín Soffía Jónsdóttir, managing director KLAK set the Golden Egg's scientific journey before a packed hall, thereby setting the tone for what is to come in the Golden Egg. Áslaug Arna Sigurbjörnsdóttir, Minister of University, Industry and Innovation and "Minister of the Golden Egg" gave an inspiring talk on innovation to a great celebration of the attendees. Andri Þór Guðmundsson, CEO of Ölgerðin and representatives from Marel, Sveinn Kjarval, project manager and Hildur Einarsdóttir, automation manager, gave an encouraging talk on the main issues of entrepreneurship and innovation.

The duo of Úlfur Úlfur, Helgi Sæmundur Guðmundsson and Arnar Freyr Frostason trotted up against the talked-about Vegetation Wall of Gróska and did everything wrong when they took the song after the launch of the Golden Egg's science tour.
