GovTech Baltic Leaders international conference is coming back on September 9, 2021!
Over the last two years, GovTech surged from a niche market to a global phenomenon, increasingly talked about by tech startups, accelerators and policymakers alike. This year’s conference will explore how can we embrace the ethos of GovTech – to enable unexpected connections, fail quickly, change often and grow exponentially but sustainably.
GovTech Baltic Leaders is the one of its kind GovTech conference in the Baltic Sea region. It will gather leading policymakers that learned to embed failure and change within their organisations, IT companies and startups that successfully co-created tech solutions with the public sector, investors that enabled exponential growth of GovTech startups, and funded impactful B2G solutions.
