What is happening at the event?

speeches. get inspired and learn from experienced experts.

We invite renowned speakers to talk about their personal experiences with developing digital products and working in the tech industry. Last year’s speakers included CXOs from Trivago, Project A Ventures, Outfittery and Blinkist. For unicon, we have convinced amazing entrepreneurs to join us - which we will announce step by step.

students. meet and connect with like-minded individuals.

The participants are one of the most essential aspects of unicon. We want to make sure to invite students that have similar interests but are at the same time diverse in their backgrounds and skills. Besides, we will create natural networking opportunities so that it is easy to connect with one another.

challenges. work on a problem and grow together with other students.

To combine the diverse skills of our attendees, we will organize a group challenge in which they collaborate for four hours in small teams. The goal is to come up with a solution concept for a specific problem and pitch this to a jury and the other participants Each group consists of software engineers, business people and designers.

workshops. learn from industry experts in a hands on format.

To enable close contact to industry leaders with high credibility and many years of experience as well as hands on deep dives, we will organise several masterclasses and workshops about specific topics regarding digital product development.

Our goal when choosing speakers is always to ensure a big variety in topics, as well as backgrounds. We are not only looking at the companies they have founded or worked for, but also what they have experienced and what parts of those experiences can support us - as students.
