Grip CEO and Founder Tim Groot will speak at our EU-Startups Summit on May 12-13 in Barcelona

On May 12-13 the EU-Startups Summit will be taking place. Our 2-day annual flagship event is going to be jam-packed with unmissable talks and activities. We’re bringing you the opportunity to meet Europe’s most innovative startups and leading investors, listen to inspirational speeches, connect with internationally successful entrepreneurs, partake in and experience a gripping startup pitch competition, and so much more!

Our speaker lineup has another marvellous addition: Tim Groot, the CEO and Founder of Grip!

Founded in 2016, Grip is one of Europe’s leading AI-powered event networking solutions for in-person, virtual and hybrid events. The UK-based startup has truly transformed the way professionals network at industry events, using AI and propriety tech to fuel matchmaking. The pandemic has triggered a massive shift in the events industry, and organisers have needed to find new easy ways to let people connect at events – whether they be fully virtual, hybrid or in-person. During this time, Grip was able to successfully pivot from an event management platform to having dedicated virtual networking capabilities. Grip’s platform and mobile app empower a fully immersive event experience to create impactful networking and engagement. The company raised €10.7 million this time last year, and have been soaring ever since – now trusted by 55% of the world’s biggest event organisers and its team of around 100 people is growing fast.

An entrepreneur at heart, Tim Groot founded Grip with the aim to empower quality interactions, boosting the success of events. With the event industry undergoing a process of evolution, Tim views connections as more important than ever and user experience during events as the key to success. 

Tim will be joining us in May to talk about how Grip grew during the pandemic, the future of virtual events, and the power of in-person networking and meetings. What’s more, the networking experience at the EU-Startups Summit will be powered by Grip’s app, allowing startups, founders and investors to connect at our exclusive meet-up – so not only will you be inspired by listening to Tim, but you’ll also get first-hand experience of his pioneering tech.
