The European Startup Conference 2022, hosted live from Ukraine, connected 2314 online visitors for thought-provoking panel discussions, interviews, startup pitches & matchmaking. Angelika Kozulina, Intetics Software Business Consultant, joined the event on 8-9 December and held dozens of productive one-to-one networking meetings there. Explore the top event highlights in our blog post.
Organized by Startup Network Europe, Startup Wise Guys, Brella, Ukrainian Tech Ecosystem, Ukrainian PR Army, and Unit.City, the event’s primary aim was to connect Ukrainian Startups with international tech businesses, Venture Capitalists, and Angel Investors.
The central message was clear — “Ukraine is here to do business!” Even during the challenging period, Ukraine’s tech startup ecosystem remains competent and resilient.
“Ukraine has an amazing track record when it comes to Startups. Ukrainians have founded companies like Grammarly, PayPal, and even WhatsApp. The country is also home to at least 1,800 Startups and 252,000 Tech Experts.”Adam Fulham, Founder of Startup Network Europe
During the panel discussions, startup ecosystem leaders from seven European countries shared their know-how on the various challenges startups might face. Fundraising for early-stage startups, managing options for employees, seeking support for legal and other bureaucratic issues, and more topics were covered by the experts. You may find more answers in the webinar recording; it’s now available on YouTube.
Another highlight is joining the Fireside chat by Steve Wozniak, Co-Founder of Apple. He covered topics ranging from his journey at Apple to his views on the current tech industry.
Furthermore, many experts agreed that the current crisis could open a window of opportunity for many startups, as they are faster and more flexible than large enterprises in addressing the critical needs of society. That is why now is the right time to think of your concept to come alive.
