Untold Stories Conference (USC) is an annual event

with a mission to create a learning and

networking opportunity for startups.

With a special focus on the CEE region,

it connects founders from all over the world

with tech professionals and VCs.

Speakers share their untold stories through talks,

fireside chats, and breakout sessions,

which are designed to be crisp,

hands-on and 100% bullshit free.

In the 2021 edition we also provided

a few selected startups the opportunity

to pitch and receive feedback from A+ investors,

such us Zach Coelius (Coelius Capital),

Gyula Feher (Oktogon Ventures) and Aurel Pasztor (PortfoLion).


Since 2019, USC - Budapest

has been a great experience

thanks to you.

We can't wait for the 2022 edition.
