We are helping to build world-class Slovakia

About Us

Founded in Bratislava in 2014, SAPIE (The Slovak Alliance for Innovation Economy) is a leading forum for debate on digital economy and innovation in Slovakia. We act as a neutral, independent and non-profit platform connecting more than 50 innovative companies.
