October 6, 2016: GoTech is a one-day conference for technology based businesses.

What is the agenda? In the age of globalisation and total digitalisation a “self-selling” product is already impossible. Issues of market entry, distribution of advanced projects, partner chain development and fast decision-making grow even more crucial than the superiority of characteristics among competitors.

Over 1,000 attendees, including technology companies, authorities, investors, students and mass media, gather at the same site to discuss ways for successful entry of innovative products to the market.


Since 2009 GoTech finalists and winners raised over $ 40M investment.

Join GoTech, and you will find yourself in a good company.
