Previous Editions

“START was my first conference experience abroad and it showed me how it truly is to take part in the conversation surrounding Innovation, and Entrepreneurship. Attending the conference was also eye-opening for me and helped in choosing my shortlisted topics for my Master’s thesis. On the other hand, I got to meet a bunch of like-minded people… some of which I still keep in touch with!”
