Last year we experienced a shift from in-person to virtual gatherings, which made them more accessible to the people around the world.

The organisers have made a great effort to deliver a memorable experience under a digital roof, with the same great networking opportunities, workshops and speeches.

This year, a number of the most anticipated startup events will continue providing full digital or hybrid experience, where you can either participate on-site or online.

We selected the best virtual events for startups, founders and anyone interested in setting up a venture and listed them in chronological order. Enjoy!
