On April 20-21, 2023, we will be welcoming you again to 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 fantastic lineup of speakers is Cathy White, the Founder and CEO of CEW Communications. Cathy will join us for a super interesting and relevant talk on how startups can master the art of PR.
Cathy is one of Europe’s most inspirational and influential communications experts and she specialises in tech startups and the wider ecosystem. She founded CEW Communications at the end of 2016. In 2018, it was recognised as one of the UK’s top 100 small businesses and today, and is regularly highlighted as one of the best agencies for tech startups. Cathy is a popular point of reference for comms expertise.
Since launching, CEW has worked with a roster of clients including early-stage and fast-growth startups – Chattermill, Microverse, Mondu, Toqio, and Sleepwave, and investors – APEX Ventures, Creator Ventures, FOV Ventures, Lunar Ventures and Pact.
Prior to running CEW, Cathy held key roles as Head of Communications for Tech Nation and early-stage VC Seedcamp. Aside from her comms work, she is an angel investor and has backed Landscape, Dream Factory, and MVPR. Cathy also hosts the EU VC Lowdown podcast, a weekly show covering the biggest news and discussions in European VC. She really is a fountain of knowledge, and we can’t wait to learn from her this April!
