Get ready for a few days of immersion into the wonderful world of tech startups, investors, and corporate executives from across Europe's ecosystem(s).
Tech.eu is partnering with Wolves Summit on its upcoming conference, scheduled for 24-26 March - yes, this year.
Evidently, there will be a massive online/virtual aspect to the event, but as things look now, there might be a substantial physical element to it as well (fingers crossed).
Either way, the hybrid format that made the two previous editions of Wolves Summit a success will be enriched with new digital experiences, including multi-stage and matchmaking functionalities, an 'Investor Podium', as well as dedicated Scale-up, Accelerator, and Community Partner Stages.
Startups, take note; these are some of the investors who have already agreed to be judges for the pitch competition part of the event:
- Chantal Ambord / Accel
- Emily Zhen / New Enterprise Associates
- Greta Anderson / Balderton Capital
- David Citron / Global Founders Capital
- Olivia de La Rivière / Bpifrance
- Jakob Kleihues / APX
- Nate Sztrum / Deutsche Telekom VC
- Oscar Ramos / SOSV
Tech.eu will be the curator of the content on the 'scale-up' track; we'll present some of our own research findings on the CEE startup ecosystems in particular, and complement the report with actionable insights in conversations with scale-up founders and investors.
Are you, in fact, a scale-up from the CEE region? Tech.eu is also giving away 20 Alpha Silver passes to Wolves Summit. Use "tech.eu" as a code here to redeem your free pass now!
The physical part of the Wolves Summit, which was originally founded in 2015, will take place at the Cambridge Innovation Centre (CIC) Warsaw. That makes all the sense in the world, because the Innovation Campus is a platform for the development of the innovation ecosystem in Warsaw, where the event (also) takes place, as the city government is officially co-organising.
As for the virtual element, this will happen on/with Hopin. Which also makes sense, as Wolves Summit is now an official Hopin event partner, running digital events for international organisations.
"We’ve got more exciting things lined up for 2021 including a brand new venue and partnership options at all investment levels," says Wolves Summit CEO Michael Chaffe. We could not be more excited about this next phase in the evolution of Wolves Summit, and cannot wait for people to join us as we host more amazing live conversations, build new relationships, and expand this amazing community", he added.
