On May 12-13, 2022, we’ll be hosting the 8th edition of our annual EU-Startups Summit in Barcelona! At the in-person comeback of one of Europe’s hottest startup events, you will have the chance to connect and network with about 1,600 founders, startup enthusiasts and investors from all over Europe, learn from around 70 prominent speakers, listen to educational talks with internationally successful founders, and find yourself at the edge of your seat during our big startup pitch competition. It’s an unmissable 2 days of action!
Here, we’d like to introduce another speaker in our awesome lineup: Printify’s Chief of Sales and Partnerships, Lauris Lietavietis! Lauris will join us in Barcelona to discuss how partnerships can boost revenues and to give tips on how to create a killer partnership strategy.
Over the years, Lauris has gained extensive industry experience in different leadership roles at various fast-growing Baltic tech companies, from Gemius to Inforgram, Prezi and, currently, Printify. As Chief of Sales and Partnerships, Lauris leads sales, success and partnerships efforts to deliver easy, reliable and fast merchandise solutions to customers, as well as maximising profit for partners. The end result is to expand the company’s Print-On-Demand business globally.
Founded in 2015, Printify is a Baltic startup that is transforming the e-commerce industry. The Printify platform was created with the aim to break down the needlessly complex print and merch industry so that creative minds, time-strapped entrepreneurs and everyone in between can do what they do best: create great products, drive sales, and run their own business. Headquartered in Riga, with a growing team of over 600 employees, Printify is taking on the world after expanding to the USA in 2020. The platform now connects entrepreneurs with over 90 print providers across the world and has raised over €45.9 million. We also had the chance to chat with Printify’s CEO and Founder, James Berdigans, earlier this year to talk about the company’s approach to sustainable growth – which Laurus is a key part of.
Lauris is an expert in a variety of areas of business, including, but definitely not limited to, revenue strategy and operations, sales and customer success, and, managing and training teams. He therefore will be bringing lots of top insights to his talk this May.
Don’t miss your chance to learn more about the benefits of partnerships in making revenue, as well as all the other inspiring speeches we have this year – secure your ticket to the EU-Startups Summit now!
