After conducting my ethnographic study of Berlin startup ecosystem, I had wanted to go back to Odense and impact the local ecosystem and it was suggested that Startup Weekend would be a great community driven initiatives to get people into entrepreneurship and form communities around it. After attending a couple Startup Weekends, I decided I should bring this back and I would go on to organize the first ever Startup Weekend in Odense. I learned a great deal such as cold outreach, selling, fund raising and leading teams. I served as lead organizer for 1 and half years, educated 80+ participants, and lead 15 organizers.
In march 2019, I took the next steps and become a Global Startup Weekend Facilitator.
