TechChill joins Startup Sesame Alliance of Tech Events

TechChill joins Europe’s largest alliance of tech events

First event from the Baltics and CEE region to join Startup Sesame


The Baltic startup event TechChill is honored to join the Startup Sesame family, the largest alliance of Europe’s tech events that helps startups grow with conferences, education and networking. TechChill happens every year in February and just recently hosted 1100 attendees in the Baltic capital of Riga, and will be the first event from the Baltics and CEE region to join the alliance that aims to help startups grow their networks and help them succeed.

 

Ben Costantini, CEO of Startup Sesame: “We created Startup Sesame with just one thing in mind: to help entrepreneurs change the world by attending the right event, at the right time. To make it happen, we select the most promising startups with our partner events and get them ‘backstage’ access to those events that will help them achieve their goals faster. We also teach them how to hack tech events with our pool of mentors and community of Tech event insiders. At the end of the program, our sesamers know exactly how to make the most out of events and can even teach a thing or two to their organizers. We now have 25 partner events and we’ve just launched our new call for entry for our 3 programs: Europe, Mobility and Entertainment: https://www.f6s.com/startupsesame2017/apply. After witnessing the value of TechChill, we’re thrilled to welcome them as a new member and look forward to taking our community to Riga next February 2018.”

 

Startup Sesame offers a tailor-made curriculum to each startup: recommendation of the most relevant conferences, event coaching and introduction to stakeholders onsite. Founders learn how to build an event strategy, develop internationally and network like a pro. Startup Sesame is the first program that focuses on these connections and gives the most promising entrepreneurs premium access to some of the most coveted Tech events in Europe and a strong network of mentors from around the world.

 

The alliance has partnered with 25 of the best tech events across Europe, such as Slush (Helsinki), Pirate Summit (Cologne), 4FYN (Barcelona), WebRazzi (Istanbul), Tech Open Air (Berlin), Pioneers Festival (Vienna) and more.

 

TechChill is conference in the Baltics and CEE, bringing together promising regional founders with international investors. For two days of official agenda and several side events, TechChill offers focused matchmaking and inspiring keynotes, balanced with an extraordinary atmosphere of entrepreneurship and party at the heart of the Baltics. The next TechChill will happen in Riga in February 22-23, 2018.
