Don’t miss the Startup Media panel discussion at this year’s EU-Startups Summit!

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!

This year, one of the panel discussions on our main stage will be covering all things startup media. It’s a topic that is incredibly important in your startup’s growth journey, and one we frequently get asked about. 

For early-stage startups, getting noticed and getting media attention can be a crucial part to getting off the ground. Media coverage can help startups to get on the radar of early adopters, future team members and investors alike. Across Europe, startup ecosystems are thriving and we have a healthy number of media publications keeping us up-to-date on all the latest startup news.

Given the EU-Startups Summit is Europe’s meeting point for startups, investors, and the startup community as a whole, we wanted to draw some attention to Europe’s startup publications – sharing who are the key players in this sector and how to get featured.

This year, we’ll be hosting a Startup Media panel discussion on the main stage, featuring some of Europe’s leading publications and startup media representatives. This panel will feature:

Mike Butcher, the Editor-at-Large of TechCrunch, Remco Janssen, the founder and publisher of Silicon Canals, Cathy White, the founder and director of CEW Communications, and Patricia Allen, Editorial Director of EU-Startups
