From May 12-13, Silicon Castles and its Startup Executive Academy (SEA) are looking forward to finding European Diamonds at the EU-Startups Summit in Barcelona, discovering gifted startups with a unique business idea and outstanding IP and technology.
Andreas Spechtler, Founder and CEO of Silicon Castles said: “We are so excited to be participating at this magnificent event as one of the main sponsors. We are ready to interact with up to 2.000 entrepreneurs, startup enthusiasts and investors from across Europe and the world at our traditional Master Class and welcome everybody at our Corporate Table”.
Meet the Startup Executive Academy team!
The Master Class will be a great preview of the 2022 edition of the Silicon Castles Startup Executive Academy. The SEA is an international go-to-market programme for executives and founders of early-stage tech startups. The programme aims to enable startups to accelerate their business by providing highly relevant and practical input that is delivered by a world-class faculty from academia and business.
The academy is led by Prof. Baba Shiv from the Stanford Graduate School of Business, accompanied by a great selection of top executives and experts from world-leading companies such as Intel, Edelman, SONY, Dolby, Electronic Arts, Spencer Stuart, PWC, PlayStation, McKinsey, LG and Deutsche Telekom.
The SEA22 will be run in a hybrid model in two stages: The first stage will be an intensive 4-day face-to-face program in Salzburg, the second one will be a 5-unit online program.
