Startup Zone – Making your startup global
The probably most exciting part of infoShare is Startup Zone, organized by the infoShare Foundation and Gdańsk Business Incubator STARTER with the famous Startup Contest which attracted 160 young companies from Europe only in 2015. Here startups establish business contacts, gain funding and listen to the best experts.
During the Startup Contest entrepreneurs will compete for the main prize – € 20K and the chance of a €1 million in investments. An international jury will judge their pitches presented at the infoShare main stage in front of 5K people. The jury includes: Jon von Tetzchner (the creator of Vivaldi and Opera web browsers), Marc Wesselink (Startupbootcamp), Pavel (Pasha) Bogdanov (Almaz Capital), Tomasz Swieboda (Inovo) and Paweł Adamowicz (the Mayor of the City of Gdańsk).
Startups will also meet with investors and experts during speed dating sessions. This is the unique chance to present innovative projects to representatives of top European funds. In addition, top speakers will inspire participants on the Startup Stage, for example: Joerg Rheinboldt – the CEO of Axel Springer Plug and Play who will talk about early stage startups ,or Valérie Kinoo – the founder and director of Coworking Les Galeries – a unique coworking and art space. She will speak about the significance of coworking spaces for developing startups.
