So what are we planning to do during the events?
We have mentioned that we are travelling and that we will be holding an event at each of the cities along the route, but what exactly will be happening at these events?
Our inital plan/idea, is that we would arrive probably something like 30 minutes before the scheduled event start time. This gives us an oppertunity to get setup. Remember, the sauna and landy are not exactly supper maneouverable and we need to get water into the kiuas, etc.
After some welcome words, we plan to have some short talks (5-10 minutes each). The idea being to get some local stories, along with more general advice & tips.
Next up is the main purpose of the event - see some locals pitching.
We are going to give preference to the soon to be ex-Nokians and ex-Nokians, but we are open to seeing other folks as well (this depends on numbers and time). Both myself and Kristoffer have seen many early stage pitches, and are ready to give feedback.
We hope to encourage people to come forward and pitch. Especially, if they are the idea stage!
After this, the sauna will be warm, so we can relax and chat with those who attend in a more relaxed atmosphere
This is our default plan, but we are open to suggestions from any locals willing to help us, or suggest alternatives. We have found that the most important thing is to have some plan, but to remain as flexible as possible.
