„TechFest is a giant meet-up for the IT community, but MegaHack and Venture Lab, with two complementary formats, were specially designed to generate ad-hoc custom solutions or to surface existing solutions already developed by the start-up community. That is why we wanted to host both events so that in the end everybody will have benefic outcomes – both the corporations which face certain challenges, as well as the start-ups, respectively the developers”, said Vlad Șuteu, TechFest Program Director.
Digital Venture Lab, taking place on the first day of TechFest –September 20th – comprises a series of presentations held by start-ups for companies representatives in order to showcase how their solutions solve certain challenges for each of the respective businesses. Tech start-ups wanting to promote their products and services in front of an audience of innovators, can apply here.
The same audience is targeted by Digital Transformers conference on September 20th, which brings on stage international and local speakers who will talk about technology trends which will shape the whole business ecosystem in the years to come.
TechFest vision is to create a global marketplace for companies, innovative start-ups and technology fans. The technology festival aims to bring together the needs of the business community and the energy and start-ups’ energy and capability to generate innovation, providing access to the common vision of professionals and educating the general public on technology
