TechBBQ started as a small BBQ gathering for tech enthusiasts and entrepreneurs back in 2013. Over the years, we have transformed into the largest and most ‘hyggelig’ event of its kind in Scandinavia. Every year we welcome more & more people from around the globe.
Our annual summit connects tech & hygge – where we talk about the latest trends, network in a cozy atmosphere, listen to trendsetting & inspiring speakers and enjoy some good old-fashioned BBQ. This year, on September 13-14, we are hosting our 11th event!
Alongside our annual event, we are also involved in a wide range of projects that help grow the local ecosystem. These include Startup Capital – an online startup-investor matchmaking event; Impact Series, which promotes green & impact entrepreneurship; the Founder Wellbeing Project, focused on mental health; StartupDen[t], an easily accessible overview of all Danish startups aimed at increasing investment in the Danish ecosystem; and the Bridging the Gap project, which promotes the life-science ecosystem. We also contribute to other events in the ecosystem and are, for example, co-organizing an event with Rainmaking around the topic of UrbanTech.
TechBBQ’s main goal is to support and strengthen the Nordic ecosystem. We foster growth for startups and scaleups. With us, it’s grilling season all year round!
In 2020, the Nordic countries joined forces in creating Nordic Legal Tech Day. With four separate events in four cities (Stockholm, Helsinki, Copenhagen and Oslo), but one common strategy and groundwork, the next Nordic Legal Tech Day(s) will be bigger and better than ever.
Nordic Legal Tech Day in Copenhagen is a forum for corporate legal teams, legal service providers and legal tech companies to meet and share experiences and get updated on the development of legal tech, tools and practices – thus the new ways of working in the legal profession. The interactive agenda is featuring experienced international and Nordic speakers – case presentations on practical experiences & tech presentations on tools.

ClauseBase is run by three former lawyers and in-house legal counsels with years of experience in drafting legal documents. In their previous lives, they were repeatedly confronted with the expensive, repetitive, and time-consuming nature of drafting contracts and they were not happy with existing solutions. In 2018, they launched ClauseBase, a paradigm shift in contract drafting to make life better for anyone drafting legal documents (not just lawyers). In the meantime, they have also launched ClauseBuddy, a Word plugin that makes it easy to share knowledge between drafters of legal documents.

The 10th and final QV Forum was held in Stockholm this year. Its central theme was Law 2.0 – an exploration of the potential disruption of the legal market.
Nordic Legal Tech was there, with a provocative presentation, “Software Is Eating the World”. CEO Nicholas Hawtin warned:
“The next generation of solution builders are focused on users and their problems. The solutions they are building are built on solving the user’s problems as intuitively and simply as possible. They are focused on the task the user is trying to perform, not on the legal issue related to that task. The resulting solutions integrate seamlessly and are often invisible.
“This may sound straightforward, but it is very hard to do – and it is not something law firms do well. Their processes do not support it. Their business model directly hinders it. Eventually, their inability to master it will cost them lots of jobs and massive revenue. And ‘eventually’ is coming faster than many of them understand.”
