ABOUT THE SPEAKERS AND TOPIC
Building a successful AI startup in Central/Eastern Europe (CEE) means overcoming unique barriers such as brain drain, international funding, and market experience. Despite these challenges, this region continues to generate monumental success with several "unicorns," hundreds of thousands of skilled developers, and dozens of lucrative acquisitions. How can startups repeat the success of others? How can AI change regional trends to benefit founders and developers alike? We've assembled industry experts to answer those questions and more. Dominik Andrzejczuk will speak about why CEE is poised to be the next major technology hub, what investors look for in new and disruptive startups, a future with quantum computing, and more. Liron Friend-Saadon will cover tips and tricks to build common enterprise AI use cases, free resources NVIDIA can provide to help build AI solutions, and more.
Co-Founder and CEO, Molecule.one
Piotr Byrski is the Co-Founder and CEO of Molecule.one -- a biotech company that uses AI to predict chemical reactions. For his achievements, Piotr has been recognized as a two-time alumnus of the Polish edition of Forbes 30 under 30.

Managing Partner of Atmos Ventures, CEO & Founder of The Quantum Data Center Corporation, Atmos Ventures
Dominik spent most of his career in Palo Alto, California, where he founded his FinTech startup Nooch in 2010. He spent his first four years in Palo Alto as a product lead, and then joined the venture capital firm Morado Ventures in 2014. Morado is a deep-tech, early-stage venture fund founded by former Yahoo executives Ash Patel and Mark Marquez. One of the founders of Yahoo!, Jerry Yang, was its largest LP. Morado Ventures was also an early investor in Rigetti Quantum Computing—one of the first venture deals in a gate-based quantum computing hardware company. Dominik has been involved in the quantum computing industry since its early days, and has seen the challenges and successes of this nascent field first-hand. In 2018, he left California to found his own venture fund, Atmos Ventures, in Warsaw, Poland. Since then, Dominik has invested in fault-tolerant quantum computing startups Oxford Ionics and ORCA Computing, and in error mitigation startup BEIT. After committing the entirety of the capital in Atmos in early 2022, he's back to entrepreneurship to pursue his lifelong passion of quantum computing. Dominik is an avid Ironman triathlete, competing in several races annually, and is also a big promoter of Poland and its massive potential to become a global tech hub. He lives in Warsaw full time.
