A Brief History of our organization

1. Founding and Early Initiatives:
Kickstart Aalborg originated in 2011 at AAU Business Campus when a group of students rejected traditional career paths in favor of entrepreneurship. Beginning with informal movie nights accompanied by pizza, the organization ignited an entrepreneurial spirit among its members.

2. Growth and Event Expansion:
Evolving from its grassroots origins, Kickstart Aalborg now hosts major events like Startup Weekend and Pitching Game, fostering the city's startup ecosystem. Additionally, it supports member-led initiatives that support local ecosystem, encouraging personal growth and responsibility.

3. Collaborative Community Impact:
Kickstart Aalborg collaborates closely with local institutions and authorities, facilitating resource exchange and support. This collaborative approach integrates the organization within the broader community, bridging the gap between aspiring entrepreneurs and institutional backing.
