Participants must pay for their own flight and hotel. We suggest finding a hotel in downtown San Francisco as most of the events will take place in this area.

Nordic One Alliance

The Nordic One alliance was initiated as a re-sponse to a need expressed by all participating organizations: the need for better collaboration across country borders within the Nordic region.
The Nordic region is world-acclaimed for its many technology exports. Still, there has never before been any strong collaboration across country borders in the Nordic region, and the Nordic One alliance is set up to do something about this. The Ambition Booster Camp is a perfect example of uniting Nordic startups in a joint effort of promoting and boosting startups.
