In times of shifting tides and economic uncertainties, the tech industry is facing one challenge after the other. Recessions, downturns, layoffs, not to mention a post-pandemic recovery, we’ve all had our fair share of it.
Not everything is doom and gloom, though! As you may know, wolves are one of the most enduring animals on the planet. Especially when moving in packs. In this picture, Wolves Summit is thrilled to announce its next edition on May 23-25, 2023 in Wrocław. The event promises to bring together leading tech companies, startups, decision makers, venture representatives and industry professionals to create new opportunities that will shape the future of the tech industry.
With recent downsizing and layoffs impacting the tech workforce worldwide, Wolves Summit 2023 in Poland becomes a pivotal event, offering an inclusive space for networking, collaboration, and connecting tech professionals with potential co-founders, talent and employers. The event’s agenda is built on six core themes and will also focus on bringing a global perspective with discussions on the impact of tech layoffs, slower capital deployment, and political challenges on the tech industry in Poland and Europe.
Networking is a critical tool for startups, providing the opportunity to connect with industry leaders, investors, and like-minded entrepreneurs. An unparalleled networking experience, like ours, is key to bringing together startups from around the world to share knowledge, ideas, and expertise. By leveraging these connections, startups can accelerate their growth, drive innovation, and achieve long-term success in the rapidly evolving tech industry, shares Michael Chaffe, CEO of Wolves Summit.
