StartSmart CEE DemoDay

Our next DemoDay is soon here! Join us on October 19th at Venture Cafe, Chmielna 73, Warsaw to hear from some of the very best startups in Europe.

🤝 A final step in our acceleration program, DemoDay not only summarizes the results of this year’s Spring Edition, but also enables 10 selected startups to pitch directly to you, the audience! Each chosen company has a few minutes to impress both you and our judges – let’s see how much they’ve learned from our workshops and mentoring!

⭐ For this edition, we’re proud to announce our special guest star: Danielle C. Tarraf! An experienced strategist, venture investor and technologist, Danielle currently serves as an Associate Partner at McKinsey. Join us to catch her keynote speech regarding her “Perspective on GenAI and its impact”.

💡 This time, we’re also hosting an additional panel discussion on “Money Matters: the state of startup funding in Poland”. If you’re interested in VC and government funding sources in Poland, as well as recent trends and changes in the startup sector, we’ve got four experts ready to give their insights:

  • Wojciech Ratymirski, Partner at Radix Ventures
  • Luiza Nowacka, Investment Manager at Vinci S.A.
  • Michał Chabowski, Partner at Rubicon Partners, Managing Partner at R Ventures
  • Dominika Duda, Programming Director for Thursday Gathering and Trend House

🏆Near the end of the evening, we will of course unveil the DemoDay winners themselves! Find out which of our startups have won the Audience Award, Alumni Award, Team Player Award, CVC Young Innovator Award (with a prize of 120,000 PLN!)  and the Berlin Bootcamp Award!
