Last year has brought a major change to event industry, as most of us have learned how to live and strive in the online world. As many events were canceled in 2020, many more were pushed back and converted into Zoom rooms. For many of us - startups - online events brought opportunities of scale, as we no longer need to worry about travel, logistics and major expenses. So we put the below list of upcoming tech startup events of 2021 which can help you connect with like-minded entrepreneurs, expand your brand awareness, and potentially find new customers, partners, and investors. Here it goes 👇
