April 2017 - Kinstellar is delighted to be part of this year’s edition of the prestigious Startup Safary conference that will take place in Budapest on 20 and 21 April 2017.
This is a high-level event attended by the most exciting start-ups, leading tech companies, accelerators, successful founders, innovators, angel investors and venture capitalists (VCs). It presents the perfect opportunity for the region’s newest start-ups to learn from some of the most successful European entrepreneurs. The key speakers this year gathering include: Chris McCann (USA), co-founder of Startup Digest (acquired by TechStars in 2012), today Community Lead at Greylock Partners, one of the most prestigious VCs in Silicon Valley and Kunal Sachdeva (Berlin), Executive for Digital, Product Innovation & Service Design at EY, angel investor and mentor of several Berlin based startups—alongside supporters such as Skyscanner, NN, OTP Bank, Prezi, Ericsson, and Air France, among many others.
Spread over two days, the event will host over 200 workshops, breakfasts, office tours, hackathlons, meetings, trainings and professional lectures and will give the estimated 3,000 participants a peek into the fascinating start-up world.
Kinstellar will host a panel discussion moderated by Ákos Mátés-Lányi, a Managing Associate in our Budapest office with more than ten years of experience in cross-border M&A, private equity, venture capital and capital markets.
Ákos Mátés-Lányi comments: “Hungarian tech start-up ecosystem is booming and we managed to invite the key players in the Hungarian market to speak in our panel. Besides giving a quick re-cap on current trends and market developments shaping Hungarian tech start-ups, the focus will be shifted to the relationship between investors and founders of tech start-ups from the very early stage of their cooperation until the exit. We would also like to highlight the aspects where lawyers may kick-in.''
Anthony O’Connor, Partner in our Budapest office and co-head of the firm-wide Private Equity sector comments: “It is indeed an honour for us to be involved in this impressive and dynamic event. We are excited at the prospect of being able to meet bright minds and successful entrepreneurs and share and listen to fascinating ideas and stories.’’
