sTARTUp Day brings Fiverr and Airbnb experience to Tartu - the program is launched!
"Being the largest startup festival in the Baltics means that the program should have something for anyone who is interested in startups,” said the program manager Sven Illing. “Over 120 speakers will offer something for everybody. The program team has kept some topics that have been there from the start - such as smart city, space tech, science to business and health-tech."
This year, one of the keynote speakers is Andres Schabelman - the VP of Expansion of Fiverr, the world’s largest freelance marketplace. Schabelman is going to share his lessons from Airbnb and Fiverr and how to scale companies (and yourself) with heart. The program also includes futurist Jeremy Goldman who will talk about predicting the successful startup of tomorrow. Hermione Way, the former Head of European Communications at Tinder, will talk about her learnings from 10 years of marketing in startups.
"We have also chosen some exciting founder stories from early-stage startups to a unicorn story of Vinted, the first billion-dollar startup from Lithuania,” said Illing. Vinted’s co-founder Milda Mikute is one of the many inspiring startup founders who is going to share her success story on the stage.
