Nordic Edge USA @ SXSW

Nordic Innovation House, Nordic Edge & NordicLA are hosting an event at SXSW 2020 about mobility and smart cities.

March 15, 2020
15:00-22:00
Scandinavian House, SXSW, Austin, Texas

Join us in an exciting afternoon of talk sessions followed by a networking event with live artist performances. We are offering Nordic startups an opportunity to have a stand at the event to network with potential new contacts, partners & investors.

Why you should join

The event consists of three sessions surrounding Nordic values & innovation, mobility and smart cities. Each session is hosted by a professional moderator and 2-3 panelists. The discussions will touch upon the importance of cooperation, sustainability and innovation. The programme will present the Nordics as leaders in innovation & sustainability, who are always finding new ways to cooperate on important societal issues.

The goal of the event is showcasing Nordic innovation and values in various industries. We want to create discussions and build bridges between the Nordic and US regions. By bringing in partners and speakers from the US, we engage a larger audience and create more business and networking opportunities for Nordic companies.

Nordic Talks podcast

We have partnered with the Nordic Council of Ministers, using their “Nordic Talks” concept inspired by Nordic values and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The talks will be recorded and edited into a podcast that will be distributed through the Nordic Talks platform and other social media channels that guarantees a wider audience beyond SXSW!

Good to Know

A delegation from the Nordics will be travelling to SXSW. Our event at the Scandinavian House is on 15 March, but there will be offered a programme which includes site visits and networking events during the dates 13 to 17 March.  The full programme will be coming soon.

The Nordic Edge team plans to depart Scandinavia on Friday 13 and return on the evening of Tuesday 17 February. You book your tickets yourself, but participants of the delegation trip will receive SXSW festival passes at the discounted rate of 895 USD.
