On April 24 we’re going to host the EU-Startups Summit at the Auditori AXA in Barcelona. It will be the 5th edition of our annual flagship event – and with 750 attendees also our biggest one so far!
And today we’re excited to announce the first speaker of the EU-Startups Summit: It’s Oscar 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. The latest funding round of about €30 million, which was officially announced this week, was led by the Japanese e-commerce giant Rakuten and Cathay Innovation.
Currently present in more than 10 cities (in Spain, Italy, France), Glovo aims at 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.
If we already sparked your interest for the upcoming EU-Startups Summit, make sure to secure your ticket now!
As in the previous years, we’ll showcase a selection of Europe’s hottest startups (incl. a big pitch competition) and come together to learn from some of the most successful European entrepreneurs of our time. You can expect more exciting speakers, a large number of high profile investors, great networking opportunities and much more. That being said, it would be awesome to meet you at the 2018 edition of the EU-Startups Summit on April 24 in Barcelona. More info will be announced soon!
