About Cluj-Napoca

Close enough to Belgrade, Budapest, Sofia, Kiev or Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca is a city with a strategic location in the East of Europe, which has been nominated as European Youth Capital for 2015 and one of the most welcoming cities in Europe – according to the European Commission official researches.

The Event

Techsylvania is a complex event: it starts with a 24 hours hackathon on the 31st of May and it continues with an international ITC conference on the 2nd of June.

The Hackathon within Techsylvania event is dedicated to those developers willing to set the foundations of potentially disruptive applications in the wearable and connected technologies. What’s more, the event attendants will have the chance to test the devices that Techsylvania Event Partners will bring here.  In the end, each team will present the product in front of the audience in order to convince the audience about its potential. The best projects will be awarded with special prizez and the first 3 teams will have free passes at the conference plus the chance to present the product in front of the broader conference audience.

The second part of the event is the conference. Technology afficionados will have the chance to find new inspiration, to meet business partners and to interact with people having the same interests.

The Speakers

Techsylvania is remarkable by the high quality of its speakers:  Marcus Segal (Former COO Casino Division at Zynga / Entrepreneur in Residence at The Summit), Paddy Cosgrave (Founder of The Summit and F.ounders ), Jack Levine (Former GM of Digg / Founder and CEO of Electric Objects), HP Jin (Co-Founder, President and Chief Executive Officer at Telenav) Aryk Grosz (CTO at Mixbook / Mosaic / Montage) and many others.
