Students Culture Hall

Cluj-Napoca, ROMÂNIA

Techsylvania 2015 will take place in Cluj-Napoca, the European Youth Capital of 2015 and Europe’s most hospitable city according to the European Commission.

Techsylvania has invited the region’s foremost creative minds, technologists and innovators to participate in our event, where inspiration, ideas and knowledge is shared directly between individuals, leading to projects and collaborations. Listen to disruptive technology speakers deliver insights into what the future may actually be like, be inspired by successful entrepreneurs that usually got where they are by making tons of mistakes, have coffee with investors, a beer with marketing professionals, or simply recharge your battery by socializing with your peers!

Techsylvania consists of two major parts: Techsylvania Hackathon and Techsylvania Conference.

This is your chance to get that extra edge and connect with people that can really make a difference!
