Only until the end of February you can apply for the Startup Contest organized by infoShare. The biggest tech conference in the CEE region will take place on 8-9 May. The best 20 startups will compete in semifinals and 5 will get a chance to win the main prize. This year infoShare also invites scaleups, which touch the most important global problems. What are the details?
Speech on the Growth Stage and the presentation for 200 investors
This year infoShare enriches the formula for innovators and young companies. Not only startups but also scaleups are invited to participate in the conference and to present their ideas and products. Scaleups are making the world better by, among others, reducing hunger, fighting against global warming, improving the quality of water or reducing social and economic inequalities.
We believe that the mission of infoShare – a conference focused on new technologies – is to promote those companies that have undertaken finding solutions to the most pressing global problems. We want to create a space for scaleups to present themselves and their products, attract investors and exchange experiences. The world, but also business, needs such initiatives – says Agnieszka Meller, Head of Startup Relations in infoShare.
Scaleups who decide to participate in infoShare have time to submit their presentation till February 28th. After that, the jury will choose up to 10 best ideas. Each scaleups will get a 5-minute slot on Growth Stage. In addition, in total 20 companies will get a free expo booth at infoShare 2019. You can read more about the competition here.
