The IdeaLab! conference is known for creating an unique and intimate atmosphere, enabling you to have great conversations – way beyond the usual “business-card-exchange-networking” events.

Starting the day with a fresh coffee and crazy founding stories is just the beginning. Chat with experienced investors during our unique speeddating, our relaxed cocktail night or at the legendary after-party.
