Mapping tech needs and digital solutions (Budapest)

Welcome to our upcoming Digital Tech Network Event - a thematic, industry-specific professional innovation workshop with a strong emphasis on corporate tech needs, market validated solutions, (project) idea generation and B2B matchmaking.

March 21, 2019 – 9 a.m.-2 p.m.

EIT DIGITAL HUNGARY – BUDAPEST Co-Location Centre, 1117 Bogdánfy u. 10/A (in Infopark)

Formerly known as Digital Infrastructure, the network event will aim to open up discussion among IT and management specialists looking to improve enterprise performance digitally, and high-tech entrepreneurs, institutions offering innovative, proven solutions in 5G, wireless networks, cloud computing, AI, big data, cybersecurity and blockchain.

On the one hand, we are inviting functional level managers of large multinational organizations, manufacturers, service providers and other organizations to present their corporates’ expectations, challenges and needs in embracing the business opportunities offered by digital transformation. The insight, deep understanding and feedback from these digital tech professionals is worth more than gold for young and experienced entrepreneurs looking to scale up.

On the other hand, we will also be hosting the best of the brightest innovators from the EIT Digital Accelerator, our unparalelled university network and other leading European tech providers to pitch their digital infrastructure solutions. The appetizing menu of deep tech shows of force combined with validated business models will have the ability to offer corporate reps in the audience a window to the latest, cutting-edge innovations, best practices and perhaps even leads to be explored further.

The March 21 Digital Tech Network Event will feature plenty of opportunities for professional networking and B2B matchmaking. Attendance is free after registration and a light buffet lunch will be provided to cap the morning.
