December 7, 2021 | Online



What is Silvertech Day?

Silvertech Day is a closing event of the Year 2021 by Baltic Sandbox.

The Silvertech industry is relatively new, but it attracts more and more attention from experts, startups and investors. The Year 2021 brought the startup scene the first Silvertech Unicorn, yet the US one.
For more than a year, we've been researching, studying the market, perspectives, and opportunities while building the Silvertech ecosystem in the EU. Now, we are happy to share this wisdom with our colleagues and friends.

We are pleased to invite experts, investors and startups to talk about the growing Silvertech industry. Let's overview the achievements and failures of 2021 and take a look into the upcoming 2022: what is to become trending, perspectives and opportunities the new year brings.
