10 years of ARRR!


– Frank Thelen

UPDATE: PIRATE Week has been postponed. Read more about it here. 



Time is a limited resource and we’d love to encourage more entrepreneurs to think about the problems they spend their time on. In the end, we will have more solutions to the challenges that really matter.

One week of ARRR

In 2020, we will host an entire PIRATE Week expecting more participants than ever to take part in various events throughout a full week.

Our Roots

Founded in 2011, PIRATE Summit is a conference specifically designed for entrepreneurs on their journey. It is about connecting, debating and learning. Focused on real life experiences, learning from failure and success. It’s about the messy reality of the entrepreneurial roller coaster. Raw and authentic.

Why Participate

PIRATE Summit is limited to 1.200 participants and thrives on the idea of a highly curated crowd to ensure #meaningfulconnections. We gather talented entrepreneurs, investors & corporates in a highly  unique setting.

Check out “The Experience” and what others said about theirs.

So PIRATE Summit absolutely rrrrocked – will be back next year to walk the plank!
