We have a great lineup for you guys in Tallinn on June 1st. This time around, we decided to organise our event around a few strongholds: a panel as well as some very interesting company presentations. We won’t disclose the companies yet, but there will be plenty and very interesting cases around. They’re also pitching clear needs or opportunities they may have for you so all investors, mentors, advisors, possible co-founders, etc – make a note of next week’s event in your calendars!

Venue & Time

We’re organising our event this time in Bonnie & Clyde, the nightclub of Reval Hotel Olümpia. The address is Liivalaia 33, Tallinn.

Doors will open at 7pm and we have scheduled the event to go on until 10pm.


As mentioned above, we have built our program for June 1st around two formats: a panel discussion and startup pitches. The pitches will be disclosed at the event itself, but they will be about 1 minute long and you’ll have a great chance to meet with the companies and entrepreneurs during the networking time. The panelists we can disclose, and looking at the experience they have accumulated – we want to promote them to the max. Our talk in Tallinn will be built around the trends and changes the startup ecosystems are going through and how startups can make the most of themselves.

We’re very honored to have the following panelists with us:

  • David Löwenbrand. David has built startups already back in the 90s when he created Kreatel. Kreatel Communications AB develops and markets service gateways for the telecom and broadband networks. As of February 2006, Kreatel is a subsidiary of Motorola.
  • Yrjö Ojasaar. Yrjö Ojasaar is the managing partner of Solon Partners. Solon Partners is an executive consulting and angel investor company specializing in helping technology companies that have international potential. Yrjö and Solon Partners have helped multiple companies grow overseas and through experience built with the company he surely has interesting stories to tell.
  • Heidi Kakko. Heidi Kakko serves on the board of the EstVCA or Estonian Venture Capital Association. Her days are spent with the responsibilities of the title Head of Investment Division at the Estonian Development Fund.

Once again, we’re thrilled to have such an experienced setup for you. Register a ticket using the module below to come and listen what kind of free advice David, Yrjö and Heidi will tell you. Did we mention the event is free?

One of the most exciting aspects of Ovi Store is it’s wide availability. It’s virtually the only place to go where you can tap into a truly global audience of mobile users.
