With Techstars Startup Week Tallinn a bit more than a month away, we are glad to announce the first patch of this year’s events. It’s never too early to get your access to the key events during Startup Week so register early to plan your week ahead.
We are really glad that for this year’s Future Founders track we will collaborate with local supporters of our future founders such as Eesti 2.0, Vivistop Telliskivi, Robotex, Insplay, Funderbeam & Superheroes. “What are startups and why are we talking about them so much lately? Can my student company also be a startup? How to find the best solutions for acquiring new skills on my own in this rapidly changing world? How to start programming studies if there are so many opportunities?” are some questions that Ede Schank Tamkivi, CEO of Eesti 2.0 raised. Answers to these questions are found at the Future Founders’ workshops and events. Soon you can register to the business plan workshop, hardware and software workshop, product presentation, and product design workshop. We’re also discussing together with established startup founders and young entrepreneurs the need for formal education in the context of starting a business. More information soon!
With the aim of bringing startup world closer to all people interested, Tech Meets Tallinn track is hosting events like The Ultimate Jobbatical HQ Tour, Networking Night #25 with Gunther Pauli in Tehnopol, Twilio Estonia: A Unicorn tale with a T̷w̷i̷s̷t̷ Flex, Scoro Speed Dating and Tallinn Mobility Hack by High Mobility. Also, we are hosting a Startup Expo in Solaris Centre primarily showcasing the physical products that Estonian startups create with startups participating such as Stigo, Click & Grow, Natufia, Triumf Gamification and Sport ID.
