Episode 27 On Startups in Iceland

Hello, December! We skipped November due to Joy's two-week visit to India, and the holiday season. We've been thinking about this topic for a while, startups in Iceland. There are a lot of interesting things going on in Iceland, besides games and the VR boom.

Three major topics we are covering are: the overall startup environment, the reason behind the startup culture, and moving forward, what's the advantages and disadvantages.

01:00 Online gaming is one of the industries that Iceland is known for, but it's also the ground for startups in fishing, and renewable energy. 

14:00 We spent some time discussing how the geographical and demographic elements are shaping the startup scene in Iceland (as compared to Southeast Asia we talked about before).

26:00 Moving forward, not enough funding resources is definitely one of the disadvantages entrepreneurs in Iceland are facing.
