About this event

As Georgian startups seek to shatter the "glass ceiling" of developing country ecosystems, the climb gets tougher and steeper. While everyone shares selfies from the top of the mountain, progress comes on the hillside.

Gega Tsurtsumia - CEO of one of Georgia's top startups takes the stage on our traditional Fireside Chat. Join us as we discuss the highs and lows of startup life and why it can be harder than military "boot camp". Payze is expanding internationally, is Y combinator alumni and has just announced partnerships with e-commerce giants - Shopify and Wix. 

Opportunities are opening for Georgia, but we need to "keep it real" with what it takes to do the impossible and scale a huge company from zero. 

From existing founders putting one foot in front of the other day after day to passionate dreamers who want to someday make the journey, we encourage you to attend this special startup community event.

Event is sponsored by Bank of Georgia Business and supported by Medialab, Chelti Winery and Terminal.

*Event will be held in English, with networking in whatever language you want!

*In order to attend, registration is necessary.
