EU-Startups Summit 2018

EU-Startups-Summit-2018On April 24, we’re going to host the EU-Startups Summit in Barcelona! It’s our annual flagship event where we showcase a selection of Europe’s hottest startups and where we come together to learn from some of the most successful European entrepreneurs of our time.

The EU-Startups Summit 2018 will be held in the Auditori AXA in Barcelona. The event will be held between 10 am and 6 pm and we’re expecting 750 founders, startup enthusiasts, corporates, angel investors, VCs as well as media people from all across Europe. A great opportunity for networking!

The EU-Startups Summit is the perfect event for aspiring entrepreneurs and investors who are aiming to build international companies from within Europe. We will have fireside chats with internationally successful founders out of the Internet space and an exciting pitch competition with 15 startup teams!

The Speakers

At the EU-Startups Summit 2018, we’ll have several high profile entrepreneurs and investors among our speakers. Below you’ll find a short overview:

Oscar-Pierre-GlovoOscar Pierre, the founder and CEO of Glovo. Founded in 2015 and headquartered in Barcelona, Glovo is transforming the way consumers access local goods, enabling anyone to get nearly any product delivered in less than 60 minutes. So far, Glovo was able to attract more than €37 million in venture capital. Currently present in more than 10 cities (in Spain, Italy, France), Glovo is expanding its “anything-on-demand” delivery marketplace now internationally, to lead the last-mile delivery sector. With more than 250,000 customers, Glovo surpassed the one-million orders threshold in July 2017.

Since Glovo is one of the fastest growing startups in Europe right now, we’re sure Oscar will have some interesting stories to share with us at the EU-Startups Summit. Aged 25, Oscar is one of Europe’s youngest and at the same time most successful startup leaders. He recently made it on the prestigious Forbes 30 under 30 list. At the EU-Startups Summit, we’ll be doing a fireside chat with him to hear about his entrepreneurial journey with Glovo and his learnings along the way.

Additional speakers will be announced in the coming weeks. If we already got your attention and you’re able to be in Berlin at that time, we highly recommend you to purchase your ticket now!
