On May 12-13, 2022, we’ll be hosting the 8th edition of our annual EU-Startups Summit in Barcelona! The 2-day event will enable you to connect with more than 1,600 founders, startup enthusiasts and investors from all over Europe, to learn from 70+ speakers, and to listen to educational and inspiring talks by internationally successful founders.
Today, we’re excited to announce our next speaker highlight: The Co-founder and Group CFO of wefox, Fabian Wesemann will join us at this year’s EU-Startups Summit! Fabian will be giving an insightful talk on ‘The formula for successful fundraising” – surely a must-attend for any founder and budding entrepreneur!
Based in Berlin, wefox is a full-stack digital insurance company driven by a single purpose: to make people safe by reinventing insurance at scale through technology. Since its 2015 launch, the company has doubled its revenues every year to over €118 million in 2020 and now counts 500 employees serving over 500k customers. This fast-paced success earned the startup unicorn status last year, and it is one of the fasting growing insurtech firms in Europe. The firm started 2022 by becoming the official insurance sponsor for AC Milan!
Fabian is a former investment banker with a strong track record as a founder, angel investor and mentor of successful startups. He oversees the financial strategy for wefox and leads the company’s strategic investment initiatives and major funding rounds, including equity fundraising, debt raise and M&A activities. To date, Fabian has raised more than €300 million – so his talk on fundraising truly is going to be expert-based!
