Untold Stories Budapest started as a unique event of its kind in 2019 organized by Startup Europe Networks and Startup Hungary. Given the lack of a strong foundation to support a durable connection between startup founders, a pressing need for an event like this was identified in the region, where regional startup founders would have the opportunity to meet their peers and successful entrepreneurs who already built global tech companies headquartered in top-tier hubs from US & EU, to connect and learn from each other.
Untold Stories Budapest 2021 will be a two-day event dedicated and customized for a limited group of selected startups, on various topics, set up according to the current issues to be solved in the startup ecosystems .
The conference aims at connecting key stakeholders in order to generate and explore innovative ideas that can have a relevant impact in Hungary and at a larger scale in Central Eastern Europe and the Western Balkans. It will also help boost knowledge transfer from highly developed ecosystems to emerging ones through directly addressing the reality behind entrepreneurship with real-life off-the-record experiences. Untold Stories Budapest 2021 will be able to provide insight from speakers that have undergone similar paths, like last year’s speaker Zach Coelius who co-founded Triggit, which was later acquired by LinkedIn, then led one of the most successful angel syndicates in history, or Shruti Shah who currently works at the Silicon Valley Bank and previously built a Y Combinator backed startup, Move Loot.
In 2021 the event brings back the intimate atmosphere, the practical talks on building a successful startup, the fireside chats and the panels uncovering professional and personal insights from founders to founders who have “been there, done that” and are committed to giving back to their communities.
The most recognized founders, investors and tech professionals has been invited from Europe and Silicon Valley. This year participants meet Alex Kudelka (VP of Sales at Bitrise), Max Azarov (Co-Founder and CEO at NovaKid), Istvan Csanady (Founder & CEO at Shapr3D), Jimmy Fong (Chief Commercial Officer at SEON) and many more to be announced very soon!
This year we also launch Pitch Slam, where high level investors, such as Zach Coelius (Coelius Capital) and Gyula Feher (Oktogon Ventures), will provide valuable feedback and advise on how to improve participants’ pitches and learn to introduce themselves to the elite world of venture capital and angel investment.
