The popup conference for startups, tech & Policy

On March 21st, we visited Warsaw to learn about the startup ecosystem and the challenges founders face. With international guests and key local players, the afternoon focused on learning what works and what does not, directly from founders and investors from Warsaw and Poland.

Thank you to those of you that joined the discussion.
