The space is arranged specifically for startups. The circular stage and the surrounding audience seats make up the Startup arena, where pitches of selected startups and other forms of presentation (for example, discussions with investors) will be held for two days.

The Startup arena project will include a competition for the best startups (exclusively for the pitching sessions), where the audience will choose their favorites using an application.
The stage is dedicated to workshops organized by the partners of the event (both commercial and content partners). The audience will be able to actively participate in the presentations by asking questions and entering into discussions with the speakers. Each workshop will be enhanced with graphic materials, films and digital presentations displayed during the speeches.

At the end of the pitching and deliberation, the jury will choose the victorious startup who came up with the best presentation.
