Barcelona is one of Europe’s most vibrant startup hubs. This is one of the reasons why we relocated to the city recently. Also, there are now direct flights between Barcelona and San Francisco. The two airlines LEVEL and Norwegian Airlines started covering this route in June, which further enhances the business relationships between the two cities.
In fact, the bridge between Barcelona and San Francisco is also the main topic of the upcoming Startup Grind Conference in Barcelona. The event is called Startup Grind BCN – SF and will see some famous entrepreneurs and investors talking about the connection between both cities, and also about entrepreneurship and tech.
The conference on October 9th and 10th will gather about 800 entrepreneurs from all over Europe for two days of educational & inspirational content and quality networking. Startup Grind BCN – SF event will be held at the UPC Campus Nord (Espai Vèrtex), and is powered by Google for Entrepreneurs.
High-profile entrepreneurs like Casey Fenton (Founder of Couchsurfing), Jonathan Bruck (Co-founder of Pocket – sold to Mozilla earlier this year!), Scott Arpajian (CEO of Softonic, co-founder of Download.com) or Francesca Bria (the CTO/CIO for the city of Barcelona) and investors like Howard Love (author of the best-seller The Start-Up J Curve), Lee Jacobs (Partner at Angelist), Peter Read (Vitruvian) or Chris Schultz (Launchpad) will be discussing why Barcelona is a great place to do business and how important the direct connection to San Francisco is. More speakers will be confirmed soon, so stay tuned visiting the Startup Grind BCN – SF website.
Like every other Startup Grind conference, it will also have a Startup Program, whereby startups from all over the place can apply to be featured during the conference with high exposure – a couple of quick-fire pitching sessions on stage, a booth at the conference venue, social media love and a session of back to back meetings with investors on the first day of the conference.
Let’s meet at the Startup Grind BCN-SF event and mingle with like-minded entrepreneurs in one of the best cities of the world and learn how to do business in Barcelona, Silicon Valley (or both) and absorb the knowledge from an amazing line-up of speakers. About 300 tickets have already been sold to employees of top-notch firms like Uber, Facebook, Ford, Airbnb, Nike and more.
