Grand Finale Day

We are gathering this year in Warsaw, Poland to recognize and celebrate the startup ecosystem of the colorful region of Central and Eastern Europe.

The CESAwards Grand Finale day will consist of 3 major events on the 24th of October; an exclusive daytime networking and workshop event with the greatest thinkers and doers of the region and beyond, an award show like none other and an afterparty that everyone will remember.
