What is TechBBQ?

TechBBQ started as a small BBQ gathering for tech enthusiasts and entrepreneurs back in 2013. Over the years, we have transformed into the largest and most ‘hyggelig’ event of its kind in Scandinavia. Every year we welcome more & more people from around the globe.

Our annual summit connects tech & hygge - where we talk about the latest trends, network in a cozy atmosphere, listen to trendsetting & inspiring speakers and enjoy some good old-fashioned BBQ. This year, on September 14-15, we are hosting our 10th event!

Alongside our annual event, we are also involved in a wide range of projects that help grow the local ecosystem. These include Startup Capital – an online startup-investor matchmaking event; Impact Series, which promotes green & impact entrepreneurship; the Founder Wellbeing Project, focused on mental health; StartupDen[t], an easily accessible overview of all Danish startups aimed at increasing investment in the Danish ecosystem; and the Bridging the Gap project, which promotes the life-science ecosystem. We also contribute to other events in the ecosystem and are, for example, co-organizing an event with Rainmaking around the topic of UrbanTech.

TechBBQ's main goal is to support and strengthen the Nordic ecosystem. We foster growth for startups and scaleups. With us, it’s grilling season all year round!
