WE UNITE EUROPE'S ENTREPRENEURIAL TALENT

START Summit is Europe's largest student-run conference for entrepreneurship and technology. We aim to actively promote innovation by connecting more than 5000 startups, investors, corporates and young talents. For the first time in 25 years the START Summit 2021 will take place in a hybrid form, both virtually and physically, in St.Gallen and Helsinki. In times of great uncertainty, this structure seeks to enable worldwide exchange and collaboration between all participants.

WE ARE THE SEEDING GROUND FOR ENTREPRENEURS TO SOLVE SOCIETY'S PROBLEMS
