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 Rupal Patel, CEO of Entreprenora, Author and Business Advisor! Rupal will take to the workshop stage for a super exciting talk on Espionage and Entrepreneurship: CIA tools for thriving as a founder.
Rupal has had quite an incredible career, going from military briefing rooms in jungles and war zones to corporate boardrooms and international stages. She previously worked as an analyst and field agent at the CIA, where she advised Four-Star Generals, earned War Zone Service Medals, and was recognized by the CIA Director for “superior support to the President of the United States.”
After this thrilling experience, she went on to earn her MBA and started her first award-winning business over ten years ago. She is the author of the international best-seller From CIA to CEO: Unconventional Life Lessons for Thinking Bigger, Leading Better, and Being Bolder. The book makes for a thrilling read and it’s one we recommend you check out!
Currently, she is the Founder and CEO of Entreprenora, an international speaker, business advisor to startups, and an agility and strategy specialist to global organisations and executives. Founded in London in 2018, Entreprenora helps visionary leaders, teams, and organizations achieve their boldest ambitions. .
Her talk is going to be one of the stand-out highlights at this year’s EU-Startups Summit, and we can’t wait to welcome Rupal to Barcelona this April!
