Packing 60 sessions and twice as many speakers across five stages – the 5th edition of the Project A Knowledge Conference is set to continue its tradition of compact, no-fluff exploration of tech and its surrounding startup and venture capital ecosystems.
Doubling down on the no-fluff side of things, this year's theme of “Beyond the Obvious” aims to reveal unexpected lessons, challenge the status quo, and provoke participants to develop broader perspectives on how to build, run, and scale digital companies.
To elevate the European tech ecosystem
The comprehensive program, delivered by high-profile experts from the European startup and VC ecosystem, looks to address the entire spectrum of modern digital operations. Attendees will get the opportunity to hear about investment, marketing, engineering, sales, branding, data science, product management, culture, ESG, legal, and more from:
- VC representatives from World Fund, KLITSCHKO Ventures, EQT Ventures,
- startup founders from Trade Republic, Spryker, Plan A, Blinkist,
- and other ecosystem players, including 2Hearts, Mastercard, Google.
The event program alongside a complete list of speakers is available on the conference website.
Connecting these various players and other ecosystem participants is another core goal of the conference, which it aims to achieve by offering several formats to chat and exchange ideas such as speed networking, expert roundtables, PAKCon & Dine, among other side events.
A project by Project A
PAKCon is organized by Project A Ventures, one of Europe’s leading early-stage tech investors, and supported by partners such as Mastercard, Vodafone, and Silicon Valley Bank. The conference originated as a knowledge-sharing event between Project A's 100+ portfolio companies, which include success stories Trade Republic, WorldRemit, sennder, KRY, Spryker, Catawiki, Unmind, and Voi, most of which will be in attendance.
Over the years, the event has organically grown to include the broader startup ecosystem players, evolving into one of the region's more notable startup conferences and expecting to welcome over 1,500 attendees at the Kino in der Kulturbrauerei venue in Berlin.
