The founder of the largest internet online cookbook in the Czech Republic, Libor Hoření, Red Bull Digital Marketing Manager Milan Formanek, or the creator of the Fancy Fries Business Factory René Müller are the UP Business Camp speakers’ names, that will take place at the Faculty of Science of the Palacký University in Olomouc on 24 November.
“UP Business Camp will be full of inspirational lectures, workshops and accompanying events this year. We are expanding it on a block dedicated to hi-tech startups and technology on campus. For example, Martin Raditsch from the German Goethe University will share his experience abroad with the spin-off companies. Marketing lovers or stories of successful young entrepreneurs will also come to their liking, “says organizer Michal Kukučka of the Palacký University of Science and Technology.
“This year we will include local stars. Participation confirmed Šimon Pelikán, who is organizing cruises in Olomouc, or Vladislava Závrská, the author of the designer booklet “Knihář”. Both are graduates of our university. We are dealing with other speakers too, “Kukučka says.
Camp will be seen during more events
The sixth year of the conference on the path to successful business will be launched in advance by CzechInvest’s Roadshow Agency for Entrepreneurship and Investment with 4 foreign speakers on Wednesday 31st October in Vault 42 in Olomouc. UP Business Camp will be there. On Wednesday, November 7th, you can enjoy an interesting lecture from the ESA BIC Prague space incubator, which will take place at UPoint.
Startup battles on university soil
For the first time, young entrepreneurs will be able to compete for the best pitch at Camp, where they will introduce their idea to an experienced jury in two minutes. The winners will be given the opportunity to compete for valuable prizes and to present their project to investors, Czech startup mentors and other personalities from the business sphere at the second year of the Olomouc Business Ball in the Startup Club, which will take place on 25 January 2019 at the NH Collection Olomouc Congress. In addition to the publicity of this event with more than 700 guests, they can take advantage of networking with other Startup Club members. Applicants can now sign up at www.businessples.com/startup-club.
Greater room for students, more interactive accompanying program
The organizers have decided to adjust the prices of tickets so they are more accessible to students. Until 4 November, candidates can receive tickets for a conference at a discounted price. “We want to motivate students to start a business. At the conference they can take the necessary information to start their own business. We also support our graduates, “Kukučka specified.
Participants are waiting for partners to participate in an active program during the conference. They can look forward to 3D printing, virtual reality, personality tests, activities of Fortress of Knowledge, or workshop on sustainable development. “We have agreed to cooperate with ARPOK to develop awareness in global development education. At the workshop, participants try to create something sweet or even practical for shopping. I will not betray more at this time, “Kukučka said with a smile.
The conference is organized by Palacký University of Science and Technology with financial support from Komerční banka. The Conference supports the CzechInvest Business and Investment Support Agency, Olomouc Region, Olomouc District Economic Chamber. The media partners are Olomouc.cz, City.cz and Czechstartups.org.
