Listening to industry experts, legendary founders, top-class investors, and many more is an integral part of START Summit, but it lacks the "hands-on" interactive component. This is why we aim to offer all attendees the chance to experience what our startups, corporates and VCs have to offer at START Fair. You will find the hottest new prototypes, the sickest booths and custom meeting spaces, allowing you to truly delve into what the entrepreneurial ecosystem is all about.
