TechBBQ - From the Nordics to Shenzhen, China

Since its inception in 2012, TechBBQ has been growing exponentially, and in 2019 almost 8,000 fellow entrepreneurs attended the three day conference. The most exciting startups, prominent Nordic Business Angels, the best European VC’s, talented students from top-tier institutions, decision-makers from scale-ups and the largest corporations.

TechBBQ is the place to explore the world of tomorrow and experience the technologies that will shape the future and now TechBBQ has come to China. The very first TechBBQ China event was hosted  November 2019 at TroubleMaker in Huaqiangbei where speakers, startups, supply chain and investors joined together for educational and fun workshops, Match&Meet, and of course the famous barbecue with drinks.

This year, TechBBQ Shenzhen is a hybrid online and in-person event with both domestic and international speakers, partners and startups. Join us on November 11th for an engaging line-up of speakers and startups. To learn more about how China and the Nordics conquer the tech world together in synergy.

Do you accept anything less than the best?

There is no time like the present and we leave no stone unturned to bring you the very best speakers, activities and food!
