Since 2016, SHIFT’s speakers have been nothing but the best-of-the best, and the year 2019 is no exception. In our main program you have the opportunity to hear and speak with modern-day-einsteins spanning from business & technology to science & philosophy. We pride ourselves in offering you the most intellectually stimulating content out there.

In addition to the high-level main program, investor ticket holders have the unique opportunity to participate in the Investor Track program. The Investor Track offers exclusive chats with renowned angel investors and venture capitalists, opportunities to meet-up with other investors, and witness pitches of top-notch startups.

Matchmaking tool Brella is in your use during the two main festival days and our event venue has a separate matchmaking area for your meetings. Don’t forget to register to Brella in advance to get the most out of your two days.
