Venture Day 2017 in Gdańsk

Interizon Foundation organized its first satellite event on the occasion of the 5th edition of the Venture Day conference.

Venture Day is an initiative at national level that aims to create a unique space for exchanging information, experiences, and networking between representatives of venture capital funds, R&D practitioners, researchers, start-ups and entrepreneurs looking for innovative solutions.

Venture Day, held in Gdańsk at the Gdańsk Energa Stadium, on 15-16 November 2017, focused on two thematic sectors:

  • eHealth, organized by Interizon and,
  • Marine and Logistics, organized by Entrepreneurship Incubator STARTER in Gdańsk as a co-organizer of the Venture Day conference.
