Pricing & Register to Attend
This event is by small business owners for small business owners. We know how cost can be a barrier to getting started and ultimately to being successful. With that in mind we have priced this Summit to be as affordable as possible and moreover, to be of value so as to not be a cost at all when you apply even some of what you learn.
The earlier you book the cheaper it is for you. This helps us to confirm the seat numbers with the venue and plan the day better.
If you prefer to be invoiced that is also fine. Just complete the form and select that option with your company details, we use Event Bright for bookings. Space is limited so book early to secure your place and keep in mind the bonus pre-summit programme. Places are only reserved upon payment.
Space is limited so register today!
Buy your ticket now and until 15th August 2023 it is almost half price to attend. BEST VALUE. We use Eventbrite ticketing and you can select an option to be invoiced if you prefer.
1,950kr (ex VAT/moms)
Regular price 3,250kr from 15th August
Early Bird Price
Early Bird price until 15th August. This is incredible value given the agenda. We use Eventbrite ticketing or you can select the option to be invoiced directly if you prefer.
While we do realise that 2,000kr is a real cost it is best seen as an investment not just in your business but in you. By the end of the Summit you will have met many new people but more importantly will be more inspired to take your business to the next level. The day is designed to give you a chance to discuss and find out how you can use in your business what others are doing. This alone will save you a great deal of time and money. Can you save 66kr per day for the next month? If so then you can afford to attend this summit.
If you have a genuine problem paying to attend but would really like to do so, get in touch and we will see how we can help.
Is it worth a full day?
As many of you who know us will know, working on your business is more important than working in it, at least if you want to make it a success and scale it. This is a day that you will invest in your business. You will come back to your daily business with more ideas and actions to try than ever before. If you do not see a result within a month, let us know and we will see how we can help.
Is there is guarantee?
Yes. If on the day by lunchtime you do not feel it was worth the money, just let us know and leave. You will get a FULL refund.
Is my ticket refundable?
All tickets are 100% refundable within 30 days of the event. If you'd like to get a refund for your ticket(s) just let us know and we will fix it.
How can I pay?
