10 Tracks of Content
From innovation to blockchain via marketplaces, SA Conference 2018 has 10 tracks of content designed to cater to a huge range of different specialists.

Startup Albania will focus on angel investors partnering with private equity funds. The discussions will explore how private equity funds can foster open innovation and deliver more business value through partnerships with angel investors, start-ups, scale-ups, high-growth businesses and SMEs.
The CEO-Preneurs will focus on connecting angel investors with corporate ventures, while the #FinTechSummit will deal with issues of financial inclusion and ways to democratize access to finance from start-ups to scale-ups to exit. LPs, start-ups, scale-ups and angel investors will be able to connect at Startup Albania Official Party and on the Main Pitching Stage.

Roundtable Sessions &
On their retirement, corporate CEOs will have more time to mentor start-ups, scale-ups, high-growth businesses and SMEs. They come with a good financial package and a vast network that they have built over the years. The only thing they may lack is know-how: they need to learn about the principles of investing in start-ups and about founding a company from scratch.
The time is now right for the CEOs of today to take a smart step — to focus on the potential of their future role as angel investors. Startup Albania is taking the initiative, creating an international platform to support the transitioning of today's CEOs to the qualified angel investors of tomorrow.
SA believes that all the countries around the world can do more to foster economic development by involving CEOs more directly in early-stage equity markets.
Small-group sessions hosted by big-time speakers.
