There are many reasons to visit Lisbon, including meeting the young local entrepreneurs at GO Youth Conference 2013, on 16 and 17 March (Update – March 2023: The website seems to be out of use, and we therefore deactivated the original link). In case you can’t attend, we’ll be there to cover the event, but either way, let us give you a couple of reasons you should grab a ticket.
Firstly, if you’re an entrepreneur, you are doomed to question the system and network with others who do it too. So why not meet founders alike, including Milo Yiannopoulos from The Kernel, Brian Wong from Kiip, Kasper Hulthin from Podio or Cristina Fonseca from Talkdesk, to name just a few?
Secondly, if you’re looking for investment, where else can you talk with the people that can help you? Take the ‘just-confirmed’ Hussein Kanji, an early stage angel investor based in Europe and the US. You may want to apply to the Startup Competition and be judged by him.
Thirdly, if you’re bootstrapping the way to success and don’t want to spend your monthly operating budget in one day – an opportunity like this doesn’t come often. This might be the best value for money event I’ve been to recently, priced at €30 (€25 for startups, €20 for students) with lunch and coffee breaks included for the two days.
We could make the list bigger, but then you would not believe what you’re missing. In case I’ve convinced you to pop in, keep in touch with me and lets discuss it there, over a beer.
Speaking of events, do you have your ticket yet for the upcoming EU-Startups Summit?
