Bitspiration 2013 Summary



Once Again, bitspiration Helps Krakow Pave Way To European Silicon Valley

Following the success of its first edition in 2012, Polish conference producer, PROIDEA, returned to the streets of Krakow, Poland with bitspiration 2013, offering dynamic presentations, inspirational discussions, and motivational workshops on the latest developing IT industries.

From June 23rd to June 25th, bitspiration's events took over Krakow's trendy Kazimierz District, becoming THE Central European hotspot for networking, education, and exchanging business venture ideas within the communities of Internet and technology startups, entrepreneurs, investors, and industry experts.

Featured guests included: Don Dodge (Microsoft, Napster, Google), J.D. Lasica (, Socialbrite,, Heather Russell (Founder and MFCEO of Rinkya), Vitaly Golomb (Executive Producer of European Venture Summit), and Alex Hunter (Company incubator, angel investor, and CEO of Rushmore).

In addition to exceptional speakers that hailed from all corners of the world, bitspiration highlights included IT community-building programs Startup Alley, Software Alley, Demo Day - a startup accelerator competition, as well as basketball tournaments, panel "pub crawls," and more. In 2013, startup vehicle fleet management system, "Cloud Your Car," stole the Demo Day victory, receiving cash rewards raised through popular crowd-funding platform, Indiegogo. Breathing new life into the conference atmosphere, daytime activities were held in unconventional venues like the former tramcar depot at the Museum of Municipal Engineering - a clever salute to new technology of the past.

Unlike other European IT event producers, PROIDEA focuses on producing unique events truly conducive to one-on-one meetings, mentoring sessions, and collaborative conversations, that cater to delivering fruitful results and improving the quality of conference experiences for its attendees. Bitspiration has established itself as a must-attend technology conference for realizing business goals. Come to bitspiration, become a part of the community, and make your business a reality.
