Polish technology conference invites Estonian startups to participate

A Polish technology conference, called infoShare 2016, invites Estonian startups to be among 5,000 of its participants and enter a startup contest with a €20,000 prize.

The conference, dubbed “the biggest tech and new media conference” in the Central and Eastern European region, is to take place 18-20 May in Gdansk, Poland. This year’s event is the tenth in a row.

According to the organisers, the conference entails lectures, workshops and panel discussions on five stages. Among over 100 international speakers, the creator of the Opera web browser, Jon von Tetzchner, and the CTO of Spotify, Kevin Goldsmith, will take the stage.

The organisers said in a statement that in addition to the expected 5,000 participants, over 250 exhibitors will showcase “specialised applications and modern IT equipment”.

A startup contest that is scheduled to take place at the conference gives companies a chance to “pitch on the main stage” and win €20,000 in cash, “plus up to” €1,000,000 in possible investments.

Startups interested in taking part in the event can register until 20 April on the conference website.
