At our highly-awaited flagship in-person event you will have the chance to connect and network with more than 1,500 founders, startup enthusiasts and investors from all over Europe, learn from around 70 prominent speakers, listen to educational talks with internationally successful founders, and find yourself at the edge of your seat during our big startup pitch competition. It’s an unmissable 2 days of action!

Today, we’re excited to announce a new speaker highlight: Zenjob Founder & CEO, Fritz Trott will join us at this year’s EU-Startups Summit!

Zenjob, founded in Berlin in 2015, envisions a world where people have control over their working lives. To this end, the fast-growing startup has created a tech solution that shapes the Future of Work, finding the best candidates for jobs from a pool of tens of thousands within seconds. Zenjob connects talents and students who are looking to gain experience and earn money to support themselves with companies looking for on-demand staffing support. As a result, their innovative platform enables talents to conveniently fit a side job into their busy lives and partner companies to flexibly manage fluctuation in business volume.

Fritz Trott founded Zenjob, alongside Cihan Aksakal and Frederik Fahning, and today serves as the company’s CEO. With previous experience in the marketing world, Fritz found himself wanting more job satisfaction in life – and thus came up with the idea for Zenjob, changing the way we work so that one day people can decide for themselves when and how often they want to work.

Just a few days ago the fast-growing company, now with about 500 employees, raised an additional €45 million to boost its expansion across Europe. Zenjob is currently already placing over 12k jobs for talented people every month. 

During a fireside chat on the main stage of our EU-Startups Summit, Fritz will share his insights from Zenjob’s impressive growth journey.

The EU-Startups Summit is coming up quick, and we’re looking forward to connecting with all of you in person during the event. In case you’d like to join, make sure to secure your ticket now!
