The DEMO-CAMP East/West, the first complex event for the IT-branch and the Internet start-up in Poznan.

On 22nd and 23rd October 2010 the DEMO-CAMP East/West, the first complex event for the IT-branch and the Internet start-up happening this year, will take place in Poznan.

The international event will gather Internet start-ups, venture capital, speakers and observers from all over Europe!

DEMOCAMP East/West 2010 stands for the already third edition of the fair for IT and start-up branches. The first edition of DEMOCAMP was held in 2008, and in May 2009 was followed with a more international focus. The great interest from start-ups and media was to be considered as an undoubted success, and that interest proved that there were many creative and unique ideas worth promoting and showing.

Encouraged by the success of previous editions, organizer the Polak 2.0 Foundation, decided to give it a go and continue the event, as it is the only one of its kind to be organized in Central Europe.

The whole event consists of modules like presentations of invited international speakers, the start-up exhibition, ‘unconference’ sessions and presentation stands as well as a discussion panel on co-investing with venture capital.

About 400 guests and participants as well as international competitors are expected to arrive and actively participate in this year DEMOCAMP edition.

There was an increase in the amount of initiatives aiming at the Internet start-ups this year, and DEMOCAMP will be something definitely outstanding!

The activities of the first day are going to be quite exciting, as the international Internet start-up competition will take place! Open to visitors, judged by experts, the competition allows each qualified team (15 this year) to present their ideas and to prove their concepts and business models in front of the public and jury, limited by 5 minutes only presentation time.

The first day also means the discussion panel for the venture capital on co-investing, that gives the companies and support institutions an opportunity to set up new business contacts.

The second day of the DEMOCAMP is marked by the ‘unconference’ session. The formula of ‘unconference’ prescribes that the division into observers and speakers is not natural any more. As the access to knowledge is widespread and easy, everyone with correspondending experience can share and discuss it with others. Numerous ‘unconference’ sessions will be simultaneously run by the participants of the event. An ‘unconference’ session means that every interested person can take the floor and share ideas, solutions and expectations. Recommended topics are those connected with setting up and developing a start-up company and Internet marketing.

So do not wait and join DEMOCAMP today! Become part of a great international event!
