Texas – CEE Tech Summit set for 21 September 2021 in Austin, Texas

CEE Digital Services Association is excited to announce its first initiative in the United States. In cooperation with the City of Austin and the World Affairs Council Austin, the 1st annual Texas – CEE Tech Summit will connect Texas-based tech companies and other corporates keen to solve their relentless need for digital services, with Digital Services providers from Central Eastern Europe.

 

What:

A 4-hour „Get Acquainted” and Matchmaking event connecting Texas-based tech companies (but not only) keen to solve their relentless need for digital services, with Digital Services providers from Central Eastern Europe. Culminating in the 1st annual USA-CEE Digital Solutions Awards ceremony over a VIP Luncheon.

 

When: 21st September, 8am – 1pm Texas time. (Designed early-morning to accommodate time-zone differences with Central Europe, + 7 hours).

This event is side-even to the 9th annual Texas-EU Summit.

 

Format: Hybrid: InPerson in Austin; and online via highly-interactive Hopin platform. We expect about 100companies to participate InPerson (perhaps 30-40 from CEE), and another 100 companies to participate online – for a total of 200 (of which perhaps 60-80 CEE-based companies).

On the „Texas” side, we expect 50+ companies to attend InPerson, many of whom will be buyers of digital services and investors; and perhaps another 100+ online.

 

Assumptions:

a) Texas tech companies and other corporates: While Austin has cemented its position as one of the leading tech-locations in North America, the cities of Dallas and Houston have strong economies and large numbers of diverse companies with incessant needs for digital/tech/IT services.

Texas also has a well-developed Venture Capital market, in search of globally-amibitious tech startups and scale-ups.

b) CEE tech companies: A long-history of strong mathematics, engineering, and analytical skills has resulted in the CEE region becoming one of the most renown sources of top tech/IT talent in the world. With more than 2,800 companies across the region already working with US partners, the „Texas-CEE Tech Summit” is a platform for nurturing existing relationships (and building new ones) between CEE tech company founders and Texas businesses.

Some CEE tech companies are also keen to connect with US-based VC investors to fuel their US expansion.

  • CaseStudies of Texas companies using CEE digital services (3 Case Studies)
  • 10 Do's and Don'ts when collaborating with overseas partners.
