Investment Ecosystem ConferenceS

On September 29th, Axel hosted its 2nd Investment Ecosystem Conference, putting Georgia's startup scene on the global map. The event was packed with keynote talks and lively panel discussions, bringing together over 600 participants.

Held at Tes Factory (ArtArea), in partnership with EBAN and GBAN, the event was a big success thanks to the support of our 60+ partners. These partners, from both the private and public sectors, as well as donor organizations, played a crucial role in making the event a hit.

We're excited to share updates and highlights from the conference, but first, we want to say a big THANK YOU to all our partners, including EBAN, GBAN, The USAID Economic Security Program, and many others.

The conference featured engaging panel discussions and keynote speeches with leading investors and entrepreneurs from around the world. Topics ranged from angel investing basics to the important role of women in the startup world, offering valuable advice to startups on their journey.

We also had around 20 visionary entrepreneurs showcase their ideas – including startups from Axel's portfolio and other promising founders from Georgia and the Caucasus region.

With over 600 startup enthusiasts, founders, and investors in attendance, the conference was a true testament to the power of innovation and collaboration. Standout startups like Agronnect, Awork, Arrival, Kovzy, and Wempler showcased the vibrant spirit and potential of Georgia's startup scene.
