What's New

In March 2020, over 1,500 participants, 600 startups, and 300 investors tuned in online to be part of the first 100 Wolves Pitch Contest, one that would set the standard for what a virtual conference should be.

Following the success of our digital events, we decided to run Wolves Summit 12th edition as a hybrid event. Whether you are a CEO, business leader, entrepreneur, policymaker, academic or activist, there is something for you.

Virtual Stages

Choose from 50+ virtual talks

Learn first hand from the industry's brightest and most experienced minds. Hear from academics, government officials, investors, and executives as they discuss new business opportunities and trends in the post-COVID era.

Why Attend Wolves Summit?

"Participating in Wolves Summit was both an intensive and rewarding experience: it opened many doors to invaluable business connections. Wolves Summit is much more than a conference - the team has built an extensive network that promotes startups far beyond the event itself. I genuinely recommend joining and becoming an active part of the community - absolutely worth it!"

Łukasz Szadkowski

FixMix

"For the last couple of months, we have been actively cooperating with the Wolves Summit and decided to invite three start-ups selected during their Great Pitch Contest to the Expara VirTech Global Accelerator. We are looking forward to the event and hope to meet many exceptional Founders from Central Eastern Europe!"

Paulina Białek

Expara

"One of the best things about Wolves Summit is the sheer volume of applications that we've had from companies. At last count, I think I had nearly 180 companies that wanted to meet me in the 48 hours that I'm here, so I think overall I'm going to have 40 or 50 different meetings with startups"
