Why attend?

sTARTUp Day is the largest business festival in the Baltic States bringing together the startup and business community. It's a flagship event where startuppers and traditional entrepreneurs, experts and newbies, government and media will loudly and proudly discuss early stage businesses. It’s an event where people who have thought about creating their own startup can get the necessary motivation and actually go through with their idea. It’s an event where everyday people with an interest in startups and technology can meet others with similar interests and grow their network. 

We want to encourage people to become more entrepreneurial and innovative, give ideas on how to avoid common mistakes and create collaborations between entrepreneurs, startups, corporations and ecosystem organizations.

The main day of sTARTUp Day is packed with amazing speakers, countless pitches and interesting keynote stories for you to gain inspiration from. For more hands-on activities we are preparing a separate program for seminars and workshops. The registration will open in November so make sure to be ready for it. If you're looking for meetings, we have a casual networking area and pre-arranged matchmaking area. You can find inspiration and great ideas at expo areas. The day ends with an unbelievable afterparty you wouldn't want to miss!
