CREATIVE STARTUPS AT EMERGE

Creative startups are invited to participate in EMERGE CHALLENGE startup competition at EMERGE that brings together the most promising early-stage startups from emerging tech hubs.
In May 2017 together with Culture & Creativity EU Program we held Create IT! conference, where we explored the deep interrelations between creativity and tech. We got positive feedback from the visitors and today we invite startups in the sphere of creative industries to participate in EMERGE CHALLENGE in our speacial Creative Tech track.

The winner of Creative Tech track will get a special prize and opportunity to pitch his\her idea on the Main Stage and compete for the main prize fund of €5000.
