Agenda, location, after-party: Some last-minute info for the EU-Startups Conference 2017

We’re looking forward to meet about 355 of you tomorrow at the HTW Audimax Berlin for this year’s EU-Startups Conference! A plan of the HTW campus (Treskowallee 8) can be found here. The Audimax is in the building D. If you’re walking from U-Bahn station Tierpark or you’re taking the tram or bus, you’ll arrive at Treskowallee, then enter the Römerweg and take the next one right to enter the campus. I’m sure you will figure it out! 🙂

No need to bring a paper ticket – just tell us your name at the entrance.

At the event, we’ll have an awesome crowd of startup founders, investors, media people and corporates. A few days ago, we actually announced the 15 startups that we selected from over 140 applications for this year’s Pitch Competition. And here we’re listing some of the attending investors, although there are several more investors who signed up in the meantime. An overview regarding the attendees can be found here.

By the way: We’re doing a little after-party for those of you who would like to continue the networking and to have some drinks together in the evening. For this purpose we rented the Bitte und Danke Bar in Berlin Friedrichshain exclusively for attendees of the EU-Startups Conference. The Bitte und Danke is just 20 minutes away (with the U-Bahn) from the HTW Audimax. At this casual get-together, everybody will pay for their own drinks. The place is limited to 150 people, so if you’d like to join us, please secure your spot as soon as possible by adding yourself to the Doodle list.
