Student Assistant:

About us

Through organising hundreds of startup events all around Europe, the Middle East & Asia “Pirate” has become a well-known brand in the international startup scene. In 2016 we organized almost 100 events, but our major events are Pirate Summit, EXEC, EXECinsurtech and RIOT. Our mission is to create meaningful connections and grow the startup ecosystem. We celebrate true entrepreneurship and the startup culture and are known for our curated, authentic and somewhat different approach to events. Essentially we – being a startup ourselves – build events we’d also love to attend. We are a team of 20+ incredibly motivated pirates and our aim is to build events that have an impact on the business and personal life of our participants.
