Tartu is a fantastic city. Only for seeing Tartu I think that you should go there. I had high expectations, but it was far better than I expected.
Peter Vesterbacka

I think that this is the perfect size, where you have some really great speakers, and also me. You also have so many interesting startups that are presenting in a really great floor to walk through.

Me personally, I love helping and sharing some of the things that we’ve learned the hard way. I hope I get invited back again next year!

I was surprised about the size of this event and the vibes around it. It’s an area that is going to see so many good startups coming out of this area over the next 5 to 10 years for sure.
Hjalmar Winbladh

sTARTUp Day is an event with a casual and positive atmosphere, always at an interesting venue. Perfect for networking – big enough to attract people and small enough to find all the relevant ones.
Martin Vares
Founder & CEO, Fractory.com
The great experience I had, was that you meet so many people from all over the world. There is one room, but the world is in it.
Lisa Lang
CEO & Founder, The PowerHouse
The atmosphere was very friendly, and I was surprised by the high quality of local and international startups presented at the event. Months later, I am still in touch with entrepreneurs and investors that I met in Tartu, which is of big value.

A buzzing event, full of energy, excellent pitches, great speakers and loads of passion. I loved being part of sTARTUp day!
