About Gulleggið innovation competition

Icelandic Startups hosts the annual Gulleggið competition as a platform for innovators in all fields to develop and launch their ideas. Around 150 ideas were submitted to the competition this year and the participants have attended a course and received training in shaping their business ideas over the past few months.

Gulleggið was initially held in 2008 and many businesses took their first steps in the competition, including Controlant, Clara, Karolina Fund, Pay Analytics, Genki, Videntifier, Solid Clouds and others. Landsbankinn has been a key supporter of Gulleggið from the beginning.
