Entrepreneurial skills in focus at the Belgrade HTW Community Event 2011
The Belgrade HTW Community Event will happen on Thursday, the 16th of June 2011, at the Grad Cultural Center. The event’s purpose is to promote the entrepreneurial spirit and startup culture in Serbia and the keynote presentations will focus mainly on entrepreneurial skills and will try to educate, inform and inspire local young entrepreneurs and wanna-be entrepreneurs.
Mike Butcher, Katy Turner, Patrick De Laive are just some of the keynote speakers which will attend the Belgrade HTW Community Event.
The event will be opened by Tomaz Stolfa from vox.io which will focus on ways to start an international business from Ljubljana or other places which are not Silicon Valley, London or New York. We will continue with Luka Abrus, the Five Minutes CEO, which will share with you his story about the Croatian startup ShoutEm. Katy Turner will then give you some tips on how to find, approach and engage a VC for your business.
Later in the evening, Mike Butcher from TechCrunch Europe will share some tips on how to deal with the media without screwing up. The event will end in a positive way with a panel focused on the advantages of building a startup in Europe.
The Belgrade HTW Community Event will also challenge Serbian entrepreneurs to a startup competition which you already know from last year’s How To Web conference – Startup Challenge. The 5 finalists of the competition will have the chance to present in front of the event’s audience on the main stage their 5 minute elevator pitch.
In order to organise the Belgrade HTW Community Event we had the support of our cool partner, SEEICT (South East Europe Information and Communication Technologies).
What to expect from the HTW Community Events?
Well, first of all there will be a lot of know-how sharing as we already got you used to. At HTW events you can be sure you won’t hate to put up with marketing presentations or hear the same things you already heard so many times before. Secondly, you will have lots of networking opportunities and you will get the chance to meet some of the greatest entrepreneurial minds of Eastern Europe. And last but not least, you shouldn’t overlook our cool legendary parties.
For HTW Community Events we have the support of our Main Global Partner: FPP (Post-Privatisation Foundation)
Looking forward to meeting you in Cluj or Belgrade!
