The Scaleup Fest

Partner   2020 03 04  

As the 4th wave of the successful VCs in CEE event series on scaling, co-organized with our great partners HunBan (Hungarian Business Angel Network) and Absolvo, on 4th March 2020 we scale to the next level with “The Scaleup Fest”.

We invite a bunch of international experience, case studies and success stories from VCs, great CEE entrepreneurs and real professionals to create the place, time, opportunity and mood for startups, scaleups, investors and corporates to meet, share, learn, get inspired, network and build their future scaling story together.

This time we offer you even more great topics, perspectives, lessons learned - already on 2 event stages, powered by HR Fest, the leading professional HR event and festival series in Hungary. 

20+ inspiring topics from 30+ speakers will guide you through the challenges of scaling; we expect 230+ attendees from 10+ countries, 70+ investors, 100+ startups / scaleups which will create a true international atmosphere, exceptional opportunity for networking and impacting each other.

Come and listen to - among others – OTB Ventures, Capital300, Fil Rouge Capital, Portfolion, X-Ventures or Hiventures; here we go with some highlights of the program to raise your appetite: 

  • Why one startup succeeds and another fails from VCs perspective
