Iceland Innovation Week 2023 is a festival that takes place annually during the last week of May and puts company innovation on display in celebration.

The Iceland Innovation Week was started by a group of Iceland’s experienced startup professionals who “felt Iceland was missing its own festival celebrating the innovation and startup scene,” so they banded together to create the IIW annual event. The celebration’s inception event happened back in 2021 after COVID-19 restrictions were lifted, and each year it has come back to showcase the Icelandic startup ecosystem. Notably, the juggernaut board of the festival has been led by a team of five women professionals since its inception.
