The next Wolves Summit is going hybrid, bringing together founders, investors and corporate executives both online and offline in Warsaw.
The event, which takes place October 5-7, is designed to connect central and eastern European startups with the global tech community, showcasing the region’s tech talent to international investors and global players such as Microsoft. This isn’t Wolves Summit’s first rodeo. Founded in 2015, it’s now one of the largest tech events in the CEE region, and this past March, the team pulled off a fully virtual edition that welcomed over 1,500 participants, 600 startups, and 300 investors.
The upcoming edition will highlight collaboration between sectors and international ecosystems, as well as the relationship between large and small businesses. Specifically, the agenda will cover healthcare and biotech, sustainability, the impact of AI — and, of course, some soul searching about the way society will function in the wake of Covid-19. Speakers include the founder of Singapore-based GTR Ventures, Kelvin Tan; the deputy mayor of Warsaw, Michał Olszewski; and our very own founding editor, Robin Wauters. The online and in-person versions will run the same agenda, with all the benefits of an onsite visit adapted for the web. Online participants can view the panel discussions and pitch contest taking place on stage, and opt for their style of networking: surf through a virtual expo room, enter private networking areas, or use Wolves Summit’s well-loved matchmaking platform. Hosting a virtual booth or side event is possible, too.
Guests onsite will stroll through the Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw. Wolves Summit and the venue are both complying with safety measures laid down by the Polish Government, and a management team will keep a close eye during the event. Tickets for Wolves Summit 12th edition are available now, with just a limited number for in-person attendance. Partner and startup packages are up for grabs, too.
