BlaBlaCar founder Frédéric Mazzella will speak at the EU-Startups Summit online!

On the 28th-30th of April, we’re hosting the 7th edition of the EU-Startups Summit – this year as an online event. This 3-day event will give you the chance to (virtually) connect and network with over 1,500 participants, learn from around 70 expert speakers, listen to educational talks with internationally successful founders, and bite your nails through our exciting pitch competition.

Today we are excited to announce speaker Frédéric Mazzella, the founder and President of BlaBlaCar.

The French entrepreneur has grown BlaBlaCar into one of the world’s leading long-distance carpooling platforms. In case you didn’t already know, Blablacar connects people looking to travel long distances with drivers heading the same way, so they can travel together and share the cost. Since 2006, the company has built up a trusted community of 90 million drivers and passengers, spread over 22 countries. In total BlaBlaCar has raised about €390 million in funding and today is one of the few European scaleups that have reached the coveted ‘unicorn’ status. In addition to financial success, BlaBlaCar is also active in achieving social and environmental impact; by encouraging travellers to share rides and reduce their carbon footprint, they’ve helped save over 200,000 tonnes of CO2 since launch.

At the EU-Startups Summit, Frédéric will join us for a fireside chat, sharing his top tips for the founders of startups who wish to grow their startup fast and achieve maximum impact.

If you would like to learn from Frédéric’s insights, plus meet 1,500+ startup players, listen to educational talks and be motivated and inspired by our speakers, there’s still time to secure your ticket to the EU Startups Summit 2021!
