PIRATE Summit started in 2011 as a true grassroots entrepreneurship conference with the focus on connecting startup founders. It has grown significantly, as has the number of startup events. Thus, we decided this year to refocus PIRATE Summit. Essentially, we return back to its roots (read about all the changes).
If you are looking to connect and learn from likeminded founders or are looking for capital/early stage startups, then PIRATE Summit is for you.
DAY 1: at 6pm we’ll officially open PIRATE Summit 2018. And we are going to do so with a huge PIRATE BBQ, drinks and plenty of opportunities to connect with all participants on the first evening.
DAY 2: one full day of PIRATE Summit 2018 followed by the burn and the crazy party. Everything will happen in Odonien.
DAY 3 : we’ll start the day off with a huge hangover breakfast for all participants – in Odonien. Trust us, you’ll need that one 😉
Afterwards we’ll organize several topic journeys through the Cologne startup ecosystem. The topics aren’t fixed yet, but expect things like AI, Blockchain etc. The idea is to connect, learn and work in small groups of like-minded people.
And we are introducing a new format, which we call PIRATE Off-The-Record. This event is strictly for selected startup founders.
