The Startup SuperNova business accelerator will be run for the fourth time this year, on the occasion of which an opening party was held at the Nova premises where Kolfinna Kristínardóttir, project manager at KLAK and Þuríður Björg Guðnadóttir, Managing Director of Nova Experience opened for registrations in the Masterclass Startup Supernova. Three entrepreneurs who have gone through the accelerator, Stefan Baxter, founder of Quick Lookup, Guðrún Ragnarsdóttir founder of Keeps and Jóhann Guðbjargarson founder of Plaio took to the stage and gave a talk about their participation in the accelerator with standing applause.
“At Nova we love great ideas and want to give the ideas of the future a chance to grow. That's why we're behind the Startup SuperNova. We've said from the beginning that we love innovation, but innovation is actually not just something completely new, but also an opportunity to reconstruct and redefine something that already exists. We are excited to start this accelerator in collaboration with Klak, who has tremendous experience assisting start-ups and leading this work." says Þuríður Björg Guðnadóttir, managing director of Nova experience.
Startup SuperNova's goal is to build business solutions for the global market and make them investable. Participation in the Masterclass is required for those companies that want to advance and apply to the accelerator itself. KLAK – Icelandic Startups, which oversees Startup SuperNova, will launch the Masterclass in June, where startups will receive training and guidance in preparing an eighteen-month action plan for their projects.
“We by KLAK are very excited to lead the work around Startup SuperNova in partnership with Nova. This project is an extremely large and important support for startups who not only want to strengthen their network, but also grow and thrive once in the market. The Masterclass Startup SuperNova is held for the second time that was highly sought after last year and is available again this year. Then anyone can register, but it is very important to register if they want to participate in the accelerator itself." Says Kolfinna Kristínardóttir, project manager at KLAK.
