No planet B: how to build sustainable future together
LUBOMILA JORDANOVA (DK), Co-founder & CEO, Plan A
MARC GIGON (FR), Executive Director, Microsoft

Every step counts, and even small ones can lead to big changes. However, if all of us recycle our household waste, while big corps still run unsustainable businesses, this won’t help fully. How should businesses transform themselves on our common mission to reduce carbon footprint and save the home planet? Trying to find an answer in an honest conversation covering both startup and corporate points of view.

LOVE versus DIGITAL: looking for a date in real life and online
OLGA PETRUNINA (RU), CEO, Pure App
MARSHA CHINICHIAN (US), Chief Science Officer, Mindshine
The way we find love or sex via dating apps differs from how it happens in real life. Or doesn’t it?
What patterns do we follow looking for potential partners online and offline? Does online help us open up or do we get stuck into this indulgence that remote and partly anonymous connection provides us with?
What makes us feel safe beside someone in real life and how we gain trust online? And how do these opposite realities even clash?

Tell me your timezone, and I'll tell who you are: does location still matter for startups?
ROBERTA RUDOKIENE (LT), Head, Startup Lithuania

VSEVOLOD PIMENOV (LT), Head of Global Business Development, PAY2U
ANDRIUS MILINAVICIUS (LT), Founding member and BDO, Baltic Sandbox
SINA ZARE (LT), CEO, Vetforcall
In the times when you can hire anyone from any part of the world and have them work remotely for you, is it still important where your company’s HQ located? Many startups from the New East have decided to move to Lithuania in recent years, and that’s why we invited them and those responsible for the startup ecosystem in the country to discuss what geography means for business today and to share their experience of relocation to Lithuania.

MANDANA AHMADI (UK), Co-Founder, CEO, Aya
DAVE ERASMUS (UK), Founder, Flow Project
NEWTON HOWARD (US), CEO, ni2o
ALEKSEI GONNOCHENKO (RU), Head, SBER Robotics Lab
A pilot driving his plane with the power of thought. A disabled person learning to move their artificial arm by just thinking. Treating mental disorders with non-invasive brain interfaces. This is not a list of fantasies. This has already been real for some time by now. To what extent neurotech has developed by now? What potential of non-invasive and invasive brain interfaces has been discovered in scientific labs? What does ethics say to us about using this kind of technology? We’ll ask those at the forefront of science.

Join this workshop to learn and practice several techniques coming from coaching, neuroscience and counselling to equip yourself for the rest of your life.
Delivered by a professional career coach (and avid “impostor syndrome” practitioner herself), this workshop allows you to reflect on how impostor syndrome manifests itself for you and assess how different techniques work in your specific situation.

LinkedIn improvements
LIZA PROSELKOVA (UK)

During this workshop, we will look at LinkedIn as a powerful tool to build your online presence and grow your network far beyond people you already know or have met. You will learn about the important features of LinkedIn that are often underrated and will know how to optimise your profile to get job offers or client requests with minimal effort.
