12.11.2017

 

On December 22 Estonia's best energy startup UBIK Solutions will battle against 11 regional winners chosen from the CEE region for the grand prize - €20k cash and access to InnoEnergy’s exclusive Highway programme worth up for €150k. 

We are happy to announce the keynote speaker - Jonas Kjellberg, one of the co-creators of Skype, a respected lecturer, author, and venture capital investor. Jonas is currently part of BCG Digital Ventures, a corporate investment and incubation firm. The company is dedicated to inventing, building, investing and launching category-changing businesses at start-up speed for the world’s most influential companies.

As one of the founding partners of Skype, Jonas was part of one of the internet’s biggest businesses – a simple, innovative idea that has gone on to revolutionize and disrupt the telecommunications sector.

A great atmosphere will be guaranteed during the pitching sessions and the whole event by the host - Georgie Barrat, the famous UK technology journalist, broadcaster and presenter.

On TV, Georgie is part of the Gadget Show team and ITV’s Weekend regular tech correspondent. Away from reviewing the latest apps and devices, she considers the implications for business and society of developments in the digital world, the changing expectations of the next generation of employees, and how to encourage more women to work in tech.
