European Start-up Days – in 2020, the event will be marked by Tech
The unusual and inspiring Spodek Arena in Katowice will rise above the start-up map of Poland for the fifth time. It is there that two days of September will be marked by technology and the search for innovative, new solutions.
People and dialogue. Technology and business. Rivalry and prestige. The idea behind the European Tech and Start-up Days is to bring together creators of innovative ideas and those who seek inspiration and new investment opportunities to implement new solutions as well as to develop products, services and companies.
The next year’s fifth edition will respond to the evolution of the Polish start-up scene. Under the new name of European Tech and Start-up Days, circles interested in economic and technological development will be brought together.
In 2020, we will present technological companies even more broadly, including those that have already went through their business start and infancy.
Authors of innovations – fascinating and fascinated. Knowledge, passion and openness are their hallmarks. That is why it is there that the most interesting contacts are established and horizons are broadened. It is there that unusual ideas are discussed. It is there that their business potential is measured.
Technologies are changing the world, and innovations become tangible. See them. Learn about them and try them out. Here in Katowice, the best start-ups will present themselves to the world. This will be another opportunity to jump to a higher level.
Technology in the first place
‘Tech’ emphasises the importance of technology as a platform of co-operation between companies – regardless of the scale of their operations, organisational structure or market experience. We want the meeting at the Spodek Arena to be for everyone, both companies with a start-up pedigree and those that are already firmly established in the market. Based on the business use of knowledge. More mature, but still developing innovations. With creativity embedded in their DNA.
The European Tech and Start-up Days will be even more strongly connected with the European Economic Congress. Only there will creative business be able to involve in the now unlimited dialogue with the management boards of companies that are permanently established in the industry, rich in capital, and interested in technological novelties.
For 12 years, the European Economic Congress in Katowice (2–4 Sep, the International Congress Centre and the Spodek Arena) has brought together: business people; presidents of global corporations; decision-makers from Poland, Europe and the world who have a real impact on economic and social life; and politicians and experts – thus remaining one of the largest economic events in Central Europe.
Get to know others, and let others get to know you
In Katowice, business ideas will once again compete for the attention of investors and the audience, as part of the Start-up Challenge competition. This is just one of the opportunities to present oneself to potential investors and obtain substantive, organisational and financial support or take advantage of valuable mentoring or expert consultation. The largest global corporations present at the European Economic Congress will have the opportunity to learn about the latest trends and phenomena in the realm of technology, which are little-known and sometimes go against the flow and off the beaten track.
