Ambassador Oreck had the freezing pleasure of opening the Polar Bear Pitch Fest in Oulu on February 25, 2015.  Start-ups get to pitch as long as they can in the icy water while being filmed and broadcast all over the world.  More information, including a video of the brave contestants and the Ambassador’s remarks, is available online.
