Refining project ideas

NordMatch isn’t only about being inspired by others, it´s also about getting a bit further with your own project idea. In small groups, so called advisory rings, you can present your idea and get boosted by others. This method offers everyone in the group equal time for presentation and for receiving tips and help from others.

Workshop on pitching

You’ve got a good idea and now you need to convince financiers that it’s a project worth supporting. In the pitching workshop you’ll learn how to sell your idea in a short presentation, a so called pitch or elevator speech.

Pitching for a panel of experts

Project ideas will be pitched to a panel with representatives from Nordic funding agencies, a crowdfunding platform and a business angel. Individual feedback is given to every pitched project idea.


At the party you´ll have time to mingle and get to know your fellow participants. And also broaden your network while enjoying food and music

Study visits and network meetings

During NordMatch you can take part in Study visits and network meetings. Information on the visits and meetings will be available on the NordMatch blog by the end of November.
