Wolves Summit, one of the CEE region’s most exciting events, is back, and this time it’s going virtual as well.
The event includes over 80 speakers and over a thousand different startups. Some of the biggest investors in the region will be there too, like PFR Ventures, the European Commission, PKO Bank Polski, as well as industry media.
The event will be streamed from Concordia Design Wrocław venue on Słodowa Island and will be exclusively available on hopin.to. The event will also facilitate a partnership with the British Embassy in Warsaw.
Additionally, even though the event is entirely online, Wolves Summit is still focused on providing the same level of quality matchmaking. The matchmaking itself is done in partnership with Microsoft, too, so you’ll likely be in good hands.
This is on top of Wolves Summit’s already existing Wolves Match tool, which has already helped arrange over 30,000 1:1 meetings between nearly 20,000 participants. And if you grab a ticket early, you can take advantage of their matchmaking system before the event even starts.
There’s also a pitching contest dubbed The Great Pitch Contest that will feature as many as 100 different startups squaring off against each other. The winners will be invited to appear in a series of Innovation World Cup events (in the IoT and Healthcare categories) and during the “Pitch to London” event – organized by the PLUGin Foundation.
According to the event’s website, “Every edition attracts more than 2500 participants from 80 countries providing 100+ hours of immersive educational content, keynotes and startup pitches”.
The agenda is shaping up to be incredibly exciting and diverse, too, with speakers from all over the world joining in on the fun.
The agenda includes a wide variety of major topics like
- Pricing for startups
- Doing Business with China: Opportunities and Challenges for International Startups
- Healthcare – the industry innovating its way out of a crisis
- Positive Steps to international growth”
- What Will Happen To The Event Industry After Coronavirus?

Ewa Kaucz, Managing Director of Concordia Design Wrocław, chimes in that, “For several years now, the Wolves Summit conference has been driven by the energy of the team associated with Wrocław on a daily basis. We are glad that the event of an international scale will be held in our city and in our building. We also hope that this is just the beginning of a fruitful cooperation between Wolves Summit and Concordia.”
The tech world has been picking up speed for years, so it’s important to keep up the pace and not let up during times of crisis. Whether it’s sharing ideas, facilitating matchmaking between startups and investors, or just generally creating an environment where projects and propositions can thrive, Wolves Summit 2021 is even more important now than it has been before.
