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.
