Meet Latitude59 speakers

We've just announced first speakers of Latitude59 2019, taking place on 16 - 17 May in Tallinn.
At the heart of our Latitude59 stage programme this year will be the wider themes of the future. Future of tech, future of education. Humanity, ethics, smart government and our living environment.

Meet Latitude59 speakers

You can also expect some changes in how the stage programme is organised, as we’ll be hosting a range of interactive sessions on topics where we’ll want to hear more from you, the audience, too!

In addition, we’ll have all our usual suspects present – a demo area for early and seed stage startups, both Latitude59 and Nordic Angel Program pitch competitions, investor-startup matchmaking and a host of side events.
