10 Years of ARRR


Your time is a limited resource. 

Spend it on problems worth solving.

We’re looking for entrepreneurs and experts that

  • are building companies that tackle real problems (our theme in 2020 is #SolveRealProblems).
  • have built a great reputation for their approach to culture, fundraising, marketing, organization, sales, and other operational challenges.
  • have an outstanding story to tell (that hasn’t yet been heard by a larger audience).



These are intense, pre-booked and prepared (by 1-2 people) discussion rounds around all kinds of topics. These sessions offer opinion leaders to debate on a certain topic and offer the participants a deep dive into specific topics.
Examples: The pros & cons of different organizational approaches (e.g. holacracy). The use of AI in your company.

Maximum capacity: 10 participants 
Duration: 60 min



An expert in a field gives an in-depth presentation about a specific topic with 20-30 participants. Masterclasses give participants the chance to have a focused learning experience and interact with experts and a small group. The sessions can range from presentation-style to interactive.

Maximum capacity: 30 participants
Duration: 60 min



Participants bring their challenges and receive feedback and advice from experts and peers. In the past we’ve had clinics that were extremely useful with only ten participants, but also had successful ones with 100+ people.

Examples: Everything that give founders sleepless nights, e.g. fundraising issues, recruiting challenges, but also achieving high growth without compromising your mental health, the health of your employees or your customers privacy.

Maximum capacity: 25 participants
Duration: 30-60 min

Keynotes & Fireside Chats

Keynotes & Fireside Chats

We’re cutting down heavily on the number of keynotes and fireside chats. If we think it’s highly entertaining and/or inspiring, we do have the possibility to add those to our agenda. However, there will only be a handful in the evenings.

We are especially interested in topics that are controversial, experts that are not speaking at every conference, and grasping stories that are seldom told. You can recommend yourself, but we give preference to those that are recommended by others.

What’s Next?

  1. We check contributions on an ongoing basis. However, with the current situation, we cannot provide an exact date on which we will reach back to you. But if you have any questions about it, just let us know.
  2. Whether you applied to speak at PIRATE Summit yourself or have been referred by a colleague or fan (or your mum) we will contact you via email. If you are selected, we ask you to fill out a form about your session. We will then publish that information on the speaker section of our website, as well as on our social media channels.
  3. Speakers are free to design their session. We will help you fine-tune so it fits to the audience.
