About Techsylvania 2016

Techsylvania 2016 will take place in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, also known as the heart of this year’s world #1 travel region, according to Lonely Planet.

We have invited creative minds, technologists and innovators from all around the world at each edition of Techsylvania to infuse and disperse inspiration, ideas and knowledge.

If you want to listen to disruptive technology speakers delivering insights into what the future may actually be like, learn from successful entrepreneurs who practice both failure and success, have coffee with investors, meet the hottest startups in the zone or simply recharge your battery by socializing with your peers, this is the place for you!

Techsylvania consists of a 24-hour hackathon and a 2 days conference.

This is your chance to get that extra edge and connect with the people you were looking for.
