These events will be your chance as a young and dynamic startup to gain major exposure  and win cool prizes at the beginning of your growth. Each of the startups will have the opportunity to present their idea in a pitch-off in front of a panel made up of investors, experienced founders. and tech journalists for the local ecosystem. It is a great chance for you to take that huge step forward in terms of marketing, increasing the recognizability new business ideas, and brand building. Who knows, you startup might end up on TechCrunch!

Organizers would especially like to encourage IoT, 3D, wearables, biotech, medical devices and fintech startups to take part in the event. In order  to make application easier, we have created a special form where you can register your startups, and we will direct it to the local organizers.

Because a relaxed atmosphere is more conducive in making meaningful connections, every event will happen in a chilled and casual atmosphere – the most important part of the event is the networking and create collisions, so you might meet your future partner, investor, coworkers, or customers. Meet-up will be held in the evening.  Cracow already has a time and place, stay tuned for information about the Warsaw and Gdynia events. Like TEDx, each event will be organized by local partners. The organizers will organize it in a casual restaurant or bar with lots of networking spaces.  Very often during such networking events a startup can take part in “one on one” conversation with investors, get valuable advice to your pitch and get feedback for your company. And if you play your cards right, you could get funded right on the spot.
