One of Europe’s premiere startup events, TechBBQ, is going digital in 2020 with a focus on empowering resilience within the startup community.
With the startup community facing unprecedented waves of change during the COVID-19 pandemic, this year TechBBQ Digital 2020 will be focusing heavily on resilience — specifically, how to stay strong as individuals, organizations, and communities.
Tickets are on sale now with Early Bird and special discounts available, and the event will run from September 17-18.
“At TechBBQ Digital 2020, we want to take a step back and reflect on the last couple months. Radical waves of change have left our tech/startup community off-balance, and we want to assess the impacts of these changes,” the organizers said in a statement to the press.
With resilience being the overarching theme, this year’s event will look at how the tech startup community can take what it has learned during the past few months and apply those lessons to prepare for future crises.

By focusing on community collaboration, the TechBBQ organizers look to bring everyone together to help identify where their technologies can be used as a force for societal good.
The first batch of speakers has just been announced, and organizers are still accepting speaking roles for thought-leaders, change-makers, trailblazers, and groundbreakers.
