Thank you for a great MobileMonday in Tartu!

Tänu kõigile kohaletulnutele ja esinejatele! Esmaspäevne täismaja kinnitas, et mobiiliinimeste kogukond Tartus aktiivne ning meil on põhjust ikka koos käia.

Kokku tuli meid üle 70, mis on Tartu kohta märkimisväärne hulk mobiilitarkvara arenduse huvilisi!

Tore oli ka ka näha, et me olime Tartus üks neljateistkümnest 10. detsembril toimunud MobileMonday üritusest maailmas.

Tänud veelkord kohale tulemast ning tänud kõigile kes aitasid korraldada.

Alt leiate kõik esitlused ning ka mõned pildid üritusest.

Thank you all for attending and great thanks for the presenters! The full-house on Monday showed that our community in Tartu is active and we we should come together more often.

We were more than 70 people at the MobileMonday - this is a remarkable number of mobile software development enthusiasts for Estonia.

It was also great to see that we were in Tartu one of fourteen mobile monday events held on 10th of December in the world.

Thank you once more for coming and thaks to the organizers.

MobileMonday: "New Trends and Tools in Mobile User Interface Development."

Seekord toimub MobileMonday Tartus ning ülikoolilinnale kohaselt algab üritus veidi tehnilisemate teemadega, mis katavad uuemaid suundi mobiili kasutajaliideste arenduses.

Kuid vaatamata tehnilisele algusele on 10. detsembril tegemist tavapärase mobiiliinimeste ja -huviliste kohtumisega, kus peale ettekandeid sundimatus õhkkonnas aetakse juttu ja tutvutakse.

Latitude 59, held on 7-8th June in Tallinn University of Technology is the go-to place for the Nordic and Baltic start-up scene for venture capitalists and start-ups in the spring. It is a great possibility for start-ups to participate in the Latitude 59 Conference and have the possibility to present their products during the intermissions and coffee breaks at the Latitude 59 Booth Hall for FREE!

The goal of the conference is to bring together innovators and startup entrepreneurs to meet angel investors, VC partners, lawyers, and those supporting the global expansion of innovative companies from countries three hundred kilometers either side of Latitude 59.

The focus of the conference is broader than the usual web and mobile startups. It elevates and draws wider attention to alternative areas of technology: biotech and cleantech to name a two for 2012. That differentiates it from a standard startup conference in the region giving its audience a broader and more interesting content. 

Thanks to its broad reach and practical approach, Latitude 59 conference is:
  • an excellent opportunity to make your start-up visible 
  • a unique place to introduce your products on a free demo ground 
  • irreplaceable network for getting useful contacts for the purposes of expanding your start-up’s activities 
The organisers provide at the demo booth ground a:
  •  free presentation table, 
  •  electricity, 
  •  wifi-connection, 
  •  and also technical assistance 
The space is for FREE, the participants just have to buy the conference ticket.

The Conference is in its Fifth Year as a continuation of the annual conference organized by Enterprise Estonia and International Technology Law Association in Tallinn since 2008. In 2012 it's going through a strong leap forward with its new organizing partners Garage48, MobileMonday Estonia, Tallinn University of Technology, and Tehnopol Foundation.

Latitude 59 is a partner conference for Slush and Arctic15 autumn conferences in Helsinki. It partners up with Riga Tech Hub, Aalto Venture Garage and Arctic Startup for wider reach in the region.

Use this opportunity to present yourself and let us know about your demo booth interest by sending an e-mail to triin.tuulik@glimstedt.ee by 20.05.2012 the latest.

Tallinnas toimuva StartSmart! ürituse peaesineja on Euroopa juhtivaid ärisuhtluse strateege Andy Lopata

Tallinnas toimuva StartSmart! ürituse peaesineja on Euroopa juhtivaid ärisuhtluse strateege Andy Lopata

Järgmisel nädalal, 26.-27.aprillil, toimub Ülemiste Citys idufirmadele mõeldud üritustesarjas StartSmart! kevadhooaja viimane seminar, kus tutvustatakse alustavate ettevõtete rahvusvahelistumise võimalusi. Ürituse peaesineja on Andy Lopata, keda ajaleht Financial Times nimetab üheks Euroopa juhtivaks ärisuhtluse strateegiks. Lisaks Lopatale on kohal ka USA 2009. aasta äriingel Bill Payne.
Ülemiste Citys toimuva seminari “Roadmap2GlobalMarkets” eemärgiks on innustada Eesti alustavaid ettevõtjaid suurelt mõtlema ja õppima rahvusvaheliselt tunnustatud ettevõtjate kogemustest.

Seminari peaesinejale Andy Lopatale on ajaleht “The Sun” andnud hüüdnime Mr.Network. Lopata on kolme ärikontaktide temaatikat kajastava raamatu autor ja ta on aidanud ärikontaktide võrgustike potentsiaali realiseerida nii väikestel ettevõtetel kui ka suurtel organisatsioonidel nagu Deloitte, Merrill Lynch ja Mastercard.

Technopolis Ülemiste juhatuse esimehe Gert Jostovi sõnul on võrgustumisest rääkimine oluline, sest rahvusvahelises suhtlemises on eestlased vahel kohmetud ja ei ole tihti teadlikud sellest, kuidas kontaktvõrgustikku edendada ja seda äri hüvanguks ning uutele turgudele liikumiseks ära kasutada.
Lisaks Lopatale esineb ürituse esimesel päeval üle 50 investeeringu teinud äriingel Bill Payne, kes õpetab idufirmasid ingelinvesteeringuteks valmistuma.

Arengufondi investeeringute divisjoni juht Heidi Kakko hindas:"Nii Eesti idufirmad kui äriinglid saavad kindlasti kasu Billi kogemustest ning veelgi enam - äriinglitel on mai alguses unikaalne võimalus osaleda Bill Bayne'i juhtimisel toimuvas äriinglite meistriklassis.“

Teiste seminari esinejate seas on Eesti eduka idufirma Pipedrive asutaja Timo Rein ning Dr. Martin Seppäla, kes on strateegilise juhtimise alal nõustanud ülemaailmselt tuntud ettevõtteid nagu Nokia, Teliasonera ja HP. 

Teisel päeval toimub praktiline seminar, mille käigus meeskonnad koostavad Yrjö Ojasaare eestvedamisel oma äriideest lähtuva tegevusplaani rahvusvahelistele turgudele jõudmiseks. Ojasaar on mitmete tehnoloogia-ettevõtete asutaja, juht, investor ja nõustaja.

Eelmised  StartSmart! sarja üritused on osutunud alustavate ettevõtjate seas väga populaarseks - veebruaris Tallinnas toimunud seminaril “Models4Business” osales üle 200 inimese Eestist ja Soomest ning ürituse otseülekannet koduleheküljel jälgis kokku 18 000 inimest üle maailma. Märtsis Helsingis koostöös Aalto Ülikooliga toimunud seminaril “Steps4Success” oli kohal 250 osalejat, sealhulgas mitukümmend noort Eesti ettevõtjat.

StartSmart! on konverentside, praktiliste seminaride, töötubade ja võrgustikku laiendavate ürituste sari, mis on suunatud Eesti ja Soome alustavatele ettevõtjatele. Üritustesari kestab 2013. aasta keskpaigani ja seda organiseerivad koostöös Eesti Arengufond, Aalto Ülikool Soomes, Eesti Ettevõtluse Arendamise Sihtasutus, Technopolis Ülemiste ja konsultatsioonifirma BDA Consulting. Programmi kaasrahastatakse Euroopa Liidu struktuurifondide programmist Interreg IV A Programme 2007-2013.

The Europe's best accelerator program is coming to Tallinn. It's time to apply, time to participate!


The Baltics and Scandinavia has established itself in Seedcamp's eyes as a firm hotspot for incredible talent ever since we first encountered Erply in 2009. 

Since then, this view has been further strengthened by a number of other awesome teams that have joined the family so we’ll be packing our bags and we’re super excited about hosting Seedcamp Tallinn on April 18.

Seedcamp: "We are very proud that Skype – one of Europe’s most successful startups ever – is sponsoring the event. This is a unique opportunity to meet with top mentors made up of serial entrepreneurs, investors and biz dev experts. We're always looking to expand the Seedcamp Family further and can offer winners residence at Google's new Campus and gift to the startup community amongst a years long programme including a monthly USA trip and Founders Sponsor package worth €50k by itself." 


"Obviously we’re all about timing rather than location, so if you’re ripe for disruption and want to make it big – apply now Applications are open until Thursday, 29th March 2012."
