announcing press-conference – more insights on a forthcoming event.
In 2013, the focus of the ”IDCEE. Internet Technologies and Innovations” conference is startups and geeks. Program was widened with a new stream – Tech Stage (a corner for CTOs of the world global web companies). Another addition is tickets for geeks. Besides the three traditional gifts with total value of UAH 300k (Winner, First Runner-Up and Second Runner-Up), participants of Startup Alley will have a chance to compete for three new nominations (Best Ukrainian Startup, Best Interactive and Best Consumer Startup). Startups will also have an opportunity to pitch in front of the representatives of the world leading accelerators, and all this will be done in a form of harsh speed-pitches – Startup Toasters.
'IDCEE mission is to develop IT entrepreneurship. It can stem only through the synergy of business approaches and tech solutions. We’ve created Tech Stage for business leaders and CEOs-to-be of web companies. We want them to have an opportunity to feel the atmosphere of technologies. And developers should be able to find common language with entrepreneurial network. Emergence of new projects after the conference is our contribution to the establishment of IT entrepreneurship ecosystem in Ukraine.'
