At this very special 2-day in-person event, you can expect to connect with Europe’s hottest startups, network with leading investors and internationally successful entrepreneurs, listen to inspirational talks and fireside chats, sit on the edge of your seat during the always-exciting startup pitch competition, and so much more. We can’t wait to welcome you with open arms!

With just 44 days to go until the Summit, we’re excited to introduce another speaker who will be joining us: Founder and CEO of PIABO, Tilo Bonow!

Tilo will take to the workshop stage, giving an educational talk on how to communicate effectively as a startup and build a real personal brand. With an international network, in-depth expertise in media brand building, as well as active engagement in the investment space – this is one you can’t afford to miss!

Tilo, otherwise known as PR Pope, launched PIABO in 2006 with the goal to help tech entrepreneurs maximize their potential in the media, reach growth targets and take the lead in the market. Based in Berlin, PIABO is one of Europe’s leading full-service PR partners for the digital economy and works with leading tech companies across the continent, including Stripe, Samsung, Silicon Valley Bank, GitHub and Shopify.

Alongside heading PIABO, Tilo is passionate about helping entrepreneurs get global exposure for their ideas. The communications expert is also the author of the entrepreneurial publication “Light your Fire” and is certainly one of Europe’s leading experts in storytelling and brand building. We’re really looking forward to welcoming him to Barcelona and we think his talk will prove incredibly valuable.
