On a mission since 2011

PIRATE Summit started in 2011 as a true grassroots entrepreneurship conference with the focus on connecting startup founders. Whilst the event has grown significantly two things remain at its heart: #MeaningfulConnections and #PurposefulDisruption. Read here about the story of PIRATE Summit and our mission. 

If you are looking to connect and learn from likeminded founders or are looking for capital/early stage startups, then PIRATE Summit is for you.

It will be ARRR!

It was a conference like no other on this planet! Great networking, quality workshops, chilled atmosphere and, most of all, truly amazing venue!

Tomasz Kopera, Ignico

Give, give, give ask.
Give everything without expecting anything in return. That is what the PIRATE Summit is about — an attitude, a set of value that makes the world a better place.

Laura Pfromm, Wayra 

Can’t remember the last time I was given so many valuable advice/life lessons and started putting in place the roots of lots of future initiatives!
I thank you all #Pirates for your giving heARRRts! May we see each other again!

Gizelle Ikarezi, AngelHack

PIRATE Summit is one of the most powerful Summits for real networking between #innovators, #vendors, #startups… certainly the craziest one.
