Program

The theme of sTARTUp Day 2017 is "From Zero to Hero" – stories about those who we look up in the business and startup world. With this in mind, we put together a three-day business festival to help you to step up your game.

It all starts with preparations and discussions about how the ecosystem and startup events help each member of the ecosystem: 7th December brings you conference hacking,  ecosystem and investment models and smart manufacturing.

The main day on 8th December is packed with amazing speakers, exciting seminars, countless pitches and interesting ideas around expo areas. If it's meetings you're after, we have a casual networking area and organized match-making area for that. The day ends with an unbelievable after-party you wouldn't want to miss!

On 9th of December make sure to visit the creative industry expo, tours around alternative Tartu and open discussions to conclude your festival experience. We find it important to seize your new inspiration, motivation, and contacts to make new things happen!

Here you can find the main day (8th December) program of sTARTUp Day. Please find the program for 7th and 9th December here!
