On May 2-3, we’re going to host the EU-Startups Summit in Barcelona. It will be the 6th edition of our annual flagship event – and with up to 1,200 startup founders and investors from across Europe also our biggest one so far! Today we’re excited to announce another highlight and three additional speakers:
Fretlink Co–Founder & CEO Paul Guillemin, Ontruck Co-Founder & CMO Gonzalo Parejo, and Jeppe Høier, the Venture Partner of Maersk Growth, will join us for a panel discussion about the future of the transportation/logistics market!
