Our challenge is not the scarcity of ideas, capital or talent – these resources are abundant.

But, too often, they develop in isolation from one another. It is only when new ideas, capital and talent find each other, connect and combine, that they truly sustain and scale.

ABOUT

The Marketplace is a curated experience connecting entrepreneurs, change-makers, industry-shapers and investors, who are applying commercial muscle to solving humanity’s most pressing problems.

It is designed to showcase 50 projects that can change the world, whilst creating opportunities to connect with those who can help these initiatives succeed.

WHEN: 28-29 NOVEMBER

WHERE: OSLO, NORWAY

MARKETPLACE LIVE!
CONNECT. NETWORK. SCALE.

Day two will see a complete re-vamp into Marketplace live!, re-imagined into a lively hawker-style marketplace to maximize the opportunities for you to connect and network.
We will remove the project booths and focus on:

01.

VENTURES HUB

 

Pop-up stations built especially for start-ups and experts to connect in safe spaces.

02.

SPEAKERS’ CORNER

 

Select projects will get the chance to pitch their growth story on the Speakers’ Corner stage, in person and digitally through our social media platform.

03.

MEET AND GREET!

 

Your chance to chat one-on-one with the world-famous, Sophia Hanson. Ask questions. Take selfies. Speak with the person behind the world’s first robot citizen.

IMPACT MAKERS
GROW YOUR BUSINESS! SCALE YOUR IMPACT!

Whether you are in search of new partners and customers, on the hunt for your next mentor, or are in pursuit of new funding opportunities, the Marketplace is designed to connect you with peers and experts to help you succeed.

Who will be there?

450 global leaders from business, policy, capital, creative, start-up, academia and NGO communities will come together. Last year, Yara’s Svein Tore Holsether, Unilever’s Paul Polman, Accion’s Michael Schlein, top level Norwegian Ministers, European dignitaries and 150 from the start-up community came together for two days at the Exchange. Check the main Exchange page for the latest on this year’s participants.

What actually happens?

If you are one of the selected 50 projects, you will get your own booth on day one to showcase your initiatives at the Exchange, and get a chance to win a cash prize of €50,000. On day two, we’ve created multiple opportunities for Impact Makers to be able to connect meaningfully with experts, strategists and investors. A select few will also get an additional opportunity to pitch their growth story on stage (and digitally) at our Speakers’ Corner.

What’s in it for me?

Sell your business and your brand. The Marketplace is set up specifically for impact-makers to amplify their reach and exposure.

Network, network, network. Connect with a very unique tribe of global leaders, experts and key decision-makers. Our invite-only attendees help ensure you find people with the right fit.

Get rewarded. The top impact-maker as voted on by participants will win a top prize of €50,000.

Challenge yourself. Learn from small and large-scale impact makers and see how they’ve gone about making impact.

Who makes up the 50 projects?

After careful review of all the submissions, we’ve selected the projects that better fit our criteria, coming from large organisations, growing start-ups to seed concepts. Stay tuned as we will be revealing the selected projects very soon!

What are you waiting for?

We’ve now closed the submissions for the Xynteo Exchange Marketplace 2018, but we are always on the look out for new ideas and projects to make the world a better place. Please reach out below with your ideas if so!

INVESTORS
CONNECT BEYOND CAPITAL

Capital is critical to solving our most pressing global challenges. However, despite the clear impetus, the capital community often operates in isolation, struggling to find the ideas and talent worth the investment. We want to change that.

Join us at the Xynteo Exchange and connect with 450+ impact-driven leaders from small and large scale global operations. This is an opportunity to:

 

Access innovative projects, early stage start-ups, to large businesses. Engage with start-ups and large-scale projects of global businesses, in the fields of food systems, transport, urban living, finance for good and sustainability.

Network with the right people. This is an exclusive, invite-only exchange to ensure we bring together quality decision-makers from across core business functions.

Be better informed. Find out what large organisations have in the works for current and future plans for innovation.

We’d love to hear from you!
