Gulleggið is a business plan competition run by Icelandic Startups for entrepreneurs to get their business ideas noticed. It is an excellent platform to make business- and execution plans for your business idea and step forward in transforming your idea to a real start-up. Participants are offered workshops, lectures, advice and assistance from experts throughout the process. After the three workshops participants submit their fully developed business plan to a group of judges.

The winner of the competition wins Gulleggið's trophy and 1.000.000 ISK. Several other extra prices are provided by our sponsors, but the total prize pool of Gulleggið is over 3.000.000 ISK.

Before September 21st you only need to submit a short description of your idea. Preferably including the following:

  • The business concept
  • The market, advantages and distinction
  • Description of the team behind the idea
