The Startup SuperNova Masterclass starts at the end of June, so a so-called Mess Night was held, where company founders talked about the mess they encountered when starting a new company. About 70 Galician guests came to Kex Hostel to listen to Svein Biering, chairman of Vaxa and investor, Helga Waage, managing director and co-founder of Mobilitus, Stefán Baxter, founder and CEO of Quick Lookup, Guðmund Árnason, CFO of Controlant, Magnús Árnason, director of digital development at Nova .
Klúðurvölð is well known abroad and is establishing itself in this country, where individuals from the professional world tell about mistakes that have been made in their careers. Such an event is a lot of fun and known for funny and witty stories that can be absurd. All fun comes with some seriousness, so these stories are for others to learn from and a good reminder that not everything goes smoothly. The common thread was a good organization of the company and not an overly complicated business plan. Many entrepreneurs who have achieved great success are more often than not the ones who have made the biggest mistakes. Those who appeared in the evening at Kex talked about the importance of choosing a good team, which is the focal point of the journey the company is on. Apart from taking a good look at the domestic and foreign markets, the founders should make an appropriate plan for when the wind blows against them and also when the company gets a boost under its sails.
