By tradition, speakers will deliver their thought-provoking keynotes at the Startup Stage. A Startup Alley will display the 150 handpicked projects, and a Startup Competition will give a chance to 150 most promising startups from CEE and beyond to compete for a total prize worth EUR 30,000! There will be quite a few opportunities for all the startups to pitch during the Startup Toaster Pitching Sessions with Jon Bradford (TechStars UK), Andrew Shannon (StartupBootcamp) and others!

A novelty of IDCEE 2013 is a Tech Stage, which will gather on one stage the CTOs of the leading European and American Internet companies who will share their insights on how to overcome tech challenges in building successful global Internet businesses.

Following its tradition, in 2013 IDCEE will also be dedicated to one of the emerging Internet markets. This time one of the biggest panel discussions is all about the vibrant VC and booming startup environment in BRAZIL! In 2012 IDCEE welcomed 2,200 participants from 45 countries around the world (mostly founders and CEOs), and attracted 170 most competitive startups from 25 countries to the Startup Alley.
