On August 8th 2016 we hosted a weird, one-day conference on an island in the Oslofjord.

We invited 150 people to spend a day listening to talks from some of the most interesting people in entrepreneurship, design and creativity. There were lots of fun activities, and a great party top it off.

We did it again in 2017.


What was it all about?

Good question! We like to do our part in building a solid, fun tech community. An Interesting Day is about gathering spectacular people to a full day of great stories, inspiration and just hanging out and having a good time. We gathered top-notch speakers to tell their stories and arranged fun activities throughout the day. We closed off by throwing a party to celebrate Bakken & Bæck’s 5-year anniversary.

Who was invited?

In addition to a lot of great people from the Nordic tech and startup scene, we invited some of the most brilliant entrepreneurs and creatives from across the world.

We aimed to get a really fun and diverse crowd of ~150 people on the island, and people from all backgrounds came to Norway to join us.
