upcoming events

We love to have people over (and we usually have a full house)

Check out our upcoming events.


We’re Europe’s surprisingly informal and slightly unexpected startup conference. We bring together seasoned investors, daring entrepreneurs and innovative executives for a 2 day casual, sunny and action-packed event.
Our favorite motto is #nobullshit.
That pretty much sums up what you can expect from us.

Colaboration is Core

Besides building our company, we like to take part in the building of others. From events to acceleration to corporate facilitation and investment, we have fought and promoted for a stronger entrepreneurial mindset that we believe has helped shape the ecosystem today.
