On April 20-21 we’ll be hosting this year’s EU-Startups Summit in Barcelona! Our annual flagship event will gather over 2,000 founders, startup enthusiasts and investors for two exciting days of networking, inspiration and learning.
In addition to a buzzing exhibition hall, great networking opportunities, and an exciting pitch competition, we’ll also have two stages where you’ll be able to learn from over 70 speakers and listen to educational and inspiring talks by internationally successful founders.
Founded in 2012, Urban Sports Club has been pioneering the digitisation of sports right across Europe. Headquartered in Berlin, the startup is on a mission to offer a more flexible sports and gym membership option, making it easy to work out, attend a bootcamp, go for a swim or play tennis in different gyms and clubs in different cities, and, allows users to choose based on their personal preferences. The Urban Sports Club platform enables users to combine all of their fitness wants in just one membership and is now operating in 6 European countries, offering members over 50 types of sport at over 10,000 venues. In 2021, the fast-growing company bagged €80 million as it consolidated its leadership position in the market and we chatted to Moritz in 2019 to learn more about the inspiration behind the company.
In addition to his role as Founder and CEO of USC, Moritz works as a mentor for the IeAD Sports Accelerator and has had previous experience working in consultancy, investment, and in the public sphere.
Moritz, who also joined us for the 2021 edition of the EU-Startups Summit, will join us for a keynote speech in Barcelona this upcoming April 20-21. He will share insights into the entrepreneurial journey and his experiences of the last ten years, building a successful sportstech company. Moritz has had a fascinating career and we can’t wait to welcome him to Barcelona!
