The StartUp Summit


The  Startup Summit is the International Trade Council’s contribution to helping StartUps become successful.  

Held twice a year, the Startup Summit gathers over 3000 successful founders, entrepreneurs, marketing directors, investors, incubators and government trade agencies who take the stage to share their stories in fireside chats and keynotes.

One event stream is purely dedicated to pitching. The others are filled with experts sharing their stories and sparking a dialogue on the future.

The Startup Summit is a great opportunity to influence the hearts and minds of young entrepreneurs, aspiring startup founders, and investors from across the globe.

The pace of the program is fast. Keynote presentations, panel discussions and fireside chats are usually 20-25 minutes long plus time for questions and answers.

During the conference attendees will have access to live presentations and recorded keynotes, be able to join in panel discussions and working groups and have access to 1:1 and group mentoring sessions.

The Summit’s virtual stages are complimented by online chat rooms and virtual conference tables for attendees to meet and discuss the challenges they face and work on collaborative solutions (live!).

Attendees can also use the online platform to request appointments with speakers, partners and one another.
