First 10 speakers of sTARTUp Day 2019 revealed

As you already know, this year’s sTARTUp Day will be bigger than ever. It’s time to announce the first 10 speakers!

But before that let’s have a look what’s the festival going to be:

We are growing in time.

Instead of one festival day, we’ll be having three! The first day is for the side events and the other two are the main festival days.

We are growing in space. Since last year we had nearly 3000 visitors from 33 different countries and we’re aiming to grow more, it’s time to change the venue. This time we will host you at the freshly renovated UT Sports Hall.


We are growing in content. More time allows us to have more speakers, participants, startups, investors, workshops – more interesting program! So, it’s time to reveal the big secret and introduce you the first 10 speakers:
