On May 12-13 we will be hosting the 8th edition of our annual EU-Startups Summit in beautiful Barcelona. This truly unmissable event is coming back to an in-person format with a bang, and we’re bringing you the chance to network and connect with over 1,500 startup enthusiasts, founders and investors. You’ll get to listen to inspirational talks and fireside chats from Europe’s leading entrepreneurs and some of the biggest names in the European startup community. Not to forget our super exciting pitch competition!
Today, introducing another speaker to our workshop stage: Communications Trainer, Startup Investor, Mentor and Author Alper Rozanes!
Alper will be joining us in May to take to the workshop stage, giving a talk on how your next pitch will make or break your startup dreams.
With over 10 years of experience as a communication expert and startup investor, Alper helps entrepreneurs to improve their pitches, ensuring that they receive that all-important external funding. Pitching to investors is a fundamental part of growing your startup and often it can be a challenging obstacle for founders to overcome. Alper’s wealth of experience makes him an excellent source of support and guidance.
A graduate from Baruch College in New York as well as certified in Persuasive Presentations from Duarte in California, Alper additionally holds an Advanced Communicator title from Toastmasters International. He also published his first book, “Presentations That Make a Difference” in 2019 – all making him a renowned communications expert!
Currently, Alper works with multiple startups across the EME region, helping founders and management teams optimize communications with potential and existing investors – focusing and working on three core areas: Content, Design and Delivery – all of which will be explored during his insightful workshop talk.
