Bitspiration is called an alternative startup festival and this year’s edition is said to be groundbreaking. Why? Let’s see…
Startup founders, Venture Capital funds, tech influencers, public institutions, students and angel investors will meet on 6th and 7th of June in Warsaw. So far, Bitspiration hosted such companies as Google, YouTube, Spotify, Microsoft, 500 Startups, The Next Web or TechCrunch.
This years’ edition is not short on features and the program itself is extremely colorful. Starting with tech journalist, writer and Silicon Valley screewriter: Dan Lyons! You have probably heard about his book Disrupted: My misadventure in the startup bubble. The book became New York Times bestseller, and Dan will share what you shouldn’t do while building a company.
Among the keynote speakers you will get to hear the voices creating the IT world’s most popular podcast – Gillmore Gang is next on the list. Followed up by speakers such as Taso DuVal, Peter Sage, Neil Devani, or Tina Baker. The conference is going to be rich in discussion panels – representatives of such startups as SeedLabs or Estimote will take part in the discussion, and Michał Borkowski for the very first time will take our stage to share the story behind Brainly’s success and it’s successful $15 million “B” round.
Second day of the conference will contain a whole new Media Track, dedicated to marketing and promotion – among others you can expect representatives of The Next Web. The full schedule is available on the event website.
Other new things this year are:
• Face2face meetings with investors
• Startup Alley: a chance for young entrepreneurs to showcase their product
• Aulery Gala: contest revealing best startups in Poland
• After Party organized together with Google Campus Warsaw and their event – Campus Summer Party!
The whole Festival will take place in the most unique, industrial venue Bitspiration attendees have seen so far: MZA Hall based in Żoliborz, Warsaw.
