Red Points CEO Laura Urquizu will speak at this year’s EU-Startups Summit in Barcelona on April 20-21!

On April 20-21, we’ll host the 9th edition of our annual EU-Startups Summit in Barcelona! This year, the event will be bigger and better than ever before and we’ll have lots of exciting speakers, panel discussions, networking activities, pitch competitions and much more. The EU-Startups Summit will gather over 2,000 founders, startup enthusiasts and investors for two days of networking, inspiration and learning!

Next up in our increasingly exciting speaker lineup is Red Points’ CEO, Laura Urquizu!

Laura Urquizu is the CEO and President of Red Points and has been named as one of Europe’s most influential women in the startup and venture capital space by us three times (2018, 2019, 2022). In 2020, Laura was named one of the 100 Leaders transforming business by Business Insider and among the most creative people by FORBES.

Laura joined Red Points in 2014 as CEO & Partner, and during her time in this position, she has been the driving force in making the company a globally renowned SaaS solution. Following Laura’s vision and business savvy, Red Points has developed its business model to help global enterprises of all types to recover their digital revenues from counterfeiting, piracy, impersonations & other types of online brand abuse.

Previously Laura Urquizu held executive and management positions at Arthur Andersen, Caja Navarra & CAN Corporation. She has played an important role in the development of the Spanish tech ecosystem. Laura also was the director of Eurecan, one of the first venture capital firms in Spain to invest in tech startups, and has held positions on the board of more than 15 tech startups.

Red Points was founded in 2011 and is now one of the most widely used solutions to recover digital revenue. Over 1,200 companies rely on the platform to fight counterfeits, piracy, impersonation, and NFT abuse. With 300+ professionals and offices in New York, Barcelona, Beijing, and Salt Lake City, Red Points has disrupted an industry traditionally led by service providers with a scalable, cost-effective solution. Laura’s visionary approaches have contributed to growing the company’s sales and clients exponentially. Under her leadership, the team has surged from 10 to over 300 people and has now raised about €76 million.

Laura will join us in Barcelona for a keynote about “The journey from Startup to Scaleup” – sharing insights about her entrepreneurial career as CEO and President of the fastest-growing brand protection software in the market.
