It all makes this experience unique for the attendees”- says co-organizer of Bitspiration, Krzysztof Kowalczyk, a partner in a VC fund early stage and seed, HardGamma Ventures. Therefore, the conference has a limit as 150 attendees and will take place in cafes at Kazimierz Disctrict in Krakow. - "A limited number of attendees and the unique atmosphere of Krakow cafes give the event a specific artistic and intellectual climate, make it easy to establish relationships with other participants and learn from the conference something for everyone" - notes Bitspiration co-organizer, Andrew Targosz, president of the PROIDEA Foundation for Supportin IT Education .
