Now more than ever, it’s a challenge to keep up with the galloping tech scene. Innovations come fast and plenty and, try as we might, it’s virtually impossible to stay on top of everything that’s going on in Europe and abroad, let alone make sense of it all.  

Between startups reinventing the way the world works, business leaders pushing boundaries of what’s possible, and consumers constantly asking for more, it’s increasingly important to take the time and find the place for business and technology to reconvene, so they can ride off into the future inspired, wiser, and with a shared purpose. 

Techsylvania returns for the 8th year in a row, the second to happen virtually, to offer just that.

The event is set to take place on September 22-23, 2021, putting 60 international speakers in front of an audience from just as many countries for two days of events across six dedicated streams:

  • Main stage & Impact stage – Keynotes and presentations of global success stories and the reality behind them
  • Startup Avalanche – A startup pitching competition gathering hundreds of contestants 
  • Technical workshops – Interactive demonstrations, experiments, and exercises hosted by various experts
  • Startup Alley – A program for startups to present their ideas to media and potential partners
  • 1:1 networking  – Matchmaking on the spot or pre-scheduled in the Hopin platform
  • Virtual Exhibition Area – With engaging activations for global brands

Speakers from Stack Overflow, Lime, eBay, Human Longevity, Grab, and other world-renowned tech companies will take to the stage in front of over 5,000 attendees to shed light on technology news, share practical insights on what it takes to succeed, and inspire the next generation of tech entrepreneurs.

There are 100 free tickets up for grabs to Tech.eu readers on a first-come, first-served basis. Use the code Tech.eu_ART on the event website to secure your seat. 

Focusing on tomorrow’s stars

With innovation as a key theme for the conference, Techsylvania is looking to host a variety of workshops, competitions, and financing events to connect experience with aspiration. One of the main ways this will take shape is the Startup Avalanche – Techsylvania’s enhanced pitching competition for early-stage startups, where, alongside a grand prize, startups are offered investment consultancy, pitch training, and business mentoring. 

Last year, Australia’s AgUnity secured a €150k investment, and, this year, over 300 startups will be vying for the prize in front of a panel of international VCs and investors. 

Techsylvania’s yearly Startup Alley event will also make a return at the two-day conference, running in parallel with the main event. It’s a program that allows any early-stage startup to introduce themselves to Techsylvania business partners and the media representatives with the goal of attracting attention and securing partnerships and investments. 

Additional information about the tickets and speakers, the event, and the schedule can be found on the conference website.
