In January this year, 17 entrepreneurs and VCs from Cologne flew to London to visit local VCs, startups and meet entrepreneurs. From this trip the idea for an English speaking blog covering startup life in the Rhine Ruhr region came to life. Since February The Pirates Inn is bringing you regular news about startups, entrepreneurs and innovation from the region.
To us the London trip was a great success and we are planning to organize them more regularly. The next one is already in May. On May 7 and 8 we will be visiting Barcelona.
I am very excited that Hermés Pique, Head Robot at Robot Media, will help us put together an arrrsome agenda and meet the key players of the local startup scene. The detailed agenda is currently being set up. As we cannot announce details just yet you can expect two days packed with
- meeting the best local startups
- meeting with bloggers and local influencers
- meeting top local VCs
- a lot of fun & networking
- great food (it’s Barcelona after all)
If you are interested in joining then apply until April 15 using this form. Arrr!
