Beyond Beta Presents: TalkBBQ on Tour
We are happy to announce that we are taking our beloved concept of a bite-size TechBBQ - TalkBBQ on tour and we will be hosting it in five different cities in Denmark!
The overarching theme of Beyond Beta Presents TalkBBQ on Tour is CHAOS!
Between the market downturn and economic realities, last year brought its share of challenges for founders and business leaders worldwide. The global sense (and reality) of chaos and uncertainty did not leave the Danish startup ecosystem untouched and many founders faced tough decisions, wide-scale cutbacks, layoffs, and even closed down. Despite the current pitfalls, opportunities exist for founders who are addressing the problems.
TalkBBQ is here to talk about it and address it; whether it is an investment, scaling, salary, the pool of talent, or founders’ mental health. Our speakers will dive deep into the dilemmas, and share their insights on how to navigate and build a successful business in the current market and economy. While we don’t know what’s going to happen next, we must understand the founders' current problems, so we can help each other to navigate through this chaos and inspire solutions where needed the most.
Scaling Successfully: What is The Best Approach during Turbulent Times?
With the current slowdown in funding and economic growth, scaling remains a key priority for many founders. But it can be significantly difficult to navigate the current VC landscape. What are these barriers and how to overcome them to scale up the business? TalkBBQ Odense dives into the founder's learning from scaling their businesses, what pitfalls to avoid, and how to secure the right funding to scale successfully in today’s economic climate.
The Challenges of Attracting and Utilizing the Pool of Tech Talent
There is a short supply of tech talent in the world and Denmark is no exception. The shift in the work marketplace has forced employers to think differently about their talent attraction efforts. TalkBBQ will talk about the challenges of attracting and utilizing the pool of startup talent and what are the important things for founders to focus on when creating opportunities.
The Funding Environment in Aalborg: What Does It Take to Raise Capital in 2023?
The Aalborg startup ecosystem has been growing in many ambitious entrepreneurs ready to take the leap and having easy access to funding is essential. What does it take to raise capital amidst the invigorating "funding winter" and what does the local funding environment look like right now? TalkBBQ will explore the available funding options for local founders and how to navigate the current landscape when raising capital in Aalborg.
The increased demand for top talent has caused a ripple effect in the startup world, leaving founders with a new dilemma of not knowing what to pay certain talents. This raises important questions for founders: How should they find and hire certain talent? What is a reasonable salary for startups and scaleups? How can startups compensate beyond just wages in order to compete and attract talent?
