This year's Voogle conference will gather an international group of business people, entrepreneurs, researchers and students around the topics of business ideation, market building, smart growth and intersectoral collaboration under the „From the first sale to the global scale“ concept.
One of the conclusions of the last year's Voogle conference was the need for a more intensive collaboration between entrepreneurs and the academic community in order to increase the efficiency of the business sector. Panels and presentations on this topic will try to provide constructive models for the solving of this problem. International experts from business support institutions, universities and industry will present their succesfull models in order to provide best practice examples and exchange ideas.
All conference participants will have the opportunity to prearange the B2B meetings which will be taking place in the theatre loges. A last year's successfully tested concept of business blind dates will also be implemented.
Startup battle will be organized by Voogle Idea Accelerator. The stage will be set for seven selected startups to pitch their business ideas in front of potential mentors, business partners and investors. Free office space rent, mentor hours, consulting hours, workshop fees and a winner's statue will be there for the taking.
