Eric Weber, the Founder and CEO of SpinLab, will speak at this year’s EU-Startups Summit!

On April 20-21, we will be welcoming you all to Barcelona for the 2023 edition of our annual flagship event: The EU-Startups Summit! And this year, it’s going to be bigger and better than ever before. We will gather over 2,000 people for two days of networking, inspiration and learning. It’s a great opportunity to learn from and connect with some of Europe’s most influential, successful and impactful founders, investors and innovators.

Next up in our exciting speaker lineup is Dr Eric Weber, the Founder and CEO of SpinLab! We’re excited to welcome Eric to Barcelona for an educational talk all about the fail-proof personas of founders!

Following an extensive career in IT-focused B2B businesses, Eric turned his hand to startup consulting, becoming a startup coach at HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management, on of the leading business schools, and freelance startup consultant where he was able to share his expertise in entrepreneurship and innovation (for which he gained a PhD).

In 2014, Eric launched SpinLab – the HHL Accelerator which supports entrepreneurial teams in growing and creating innovative businesses. Based in Leipzig, the award-winning accelerator aims to give founders the tools they need to reach incredible results, providing them with mentors, workshops, coaches and more. Eric also co-founded the startup seed fund Smart Infrastructure Ventures, where he currently serves as Venture Partner. With this impressive background, he has valuable insights to share on just what makes a founder successful – and he will share that with us in Barcelona, identifying the personas that make you fail-proof.
