The Startup Track features a premier Startup Competition for groundbreaking Ukrainian startups.
The event brings together renowned tech entrepreneurs, investors, and business angels to observe revolutionary ideas and the pitch competition in Lviv, Ukraine. The 2022 edition of Startup Track showcased the most innovative solutions that aim to solve real-world technological and humanitarian challenges. Impressively, half of the ten finalists presented medtech-based solutions.
The tech industry, despite the challenging situation in the country, continues to show resilience as the sole export sector that operates fully during the war. It not only remains stable but also continues to evolve. Despite the difficult situation, we see growth in the Defence Tech sector and the emergence of new startups in this field. In 2023, IT Arena will partner with Brave1, the Defense Technology Development Cluster, and introduce a special category for defence tech startups within the Startup Competition at IT Arena.
