About

Imagine having 100 top startup speakers at your fingertips;

Startup leaders from 30+ countries to exchange the experience with;

And a startup competition that involves Silicon Valley investors and a shot of a $1,000,000 global prize!

Many of you attended SG Europe-Asia Connect last year and you remember the cool speakers, the great energy in the crowd, and maybe some useful connection you made.

This year’s online format opens the door to amazing speakers who don’t have time to fly to Georgia such as a VC with the first investment in Zoom and someone who helped grow the most valuable company in the world.

Get ready to learn from the great entrepreneurs in the crowd, perhaps get an enhanced networking ticket to make more valuable contacts. Or aim high and take a shot at the world stage in our Startup Showcase & Competition.

There has never been a better time for people from emerging markets to step onto the world stage. Take your shot at learning, connecting, and creating value!
