The CEE startup scene will gather one more time in Budapest on November 29 and 30 during The 2022 Untold Stories Conference.

The Untold Stories Conference is a platform where local and regional entrepreneurs can exchange ideas, experiences and lessons learned on fundraising, building products and companies, and international growth. It is co-organized by EMG Group Plc., Startup Hungary and Startup Europe Networks.

This year’s face-to-face edition is expected to gather over 800+ attendees, 200+ startups, 50+ investors, 60+ speakers.  

Regional founders will get to connect with European and regional VC funds, such as EQT Ventures, Point Nine, Seedcamp, Credo Ventures, and many more.

There will also be a startup pitching competition Pitch Slam where founders can present their ideas and get advice from prominent investors.  

Some of the regional scaleups such as the Czech unicorn company Productboard and Czech-Slovak data science platform Deepnote will showcase some hands-on tactics on how to build a global tech company from our region. 

The hosting country Hungary will share the stories of their soonicorns such as the fraud detection company SEON and the mobile DevOps platform Bitrise. 


“The idea behind Untold Stories is to create a platform that gives future founders the chance to hear the stories they won’t read anywhere else, some of the most successful entrepreneurs share honestly, and access to founders and investors with a no filtered approach who are willing to give a hand up the ladder to the generations following them,” Csongor Bias, Managing Director at Startup Hungary and Co-Founder of Untold Stories Conference said in the press release.


Serial entrepreneurs and investors from Silicon Valley, like Zach Coelius, Marvin Liao, and Sheel Mohnot will take the stage to inspire regional founders with their previously untold stories. 

The Recursive CEO Irina Obushtarova will also be there as a moderator, so make sure you stop by and say hi.
