Conducted by Ann Glorieus and Lien Van Den Steen, the bus will depart with 20+ developers, designers and hustlers towards Pirate Summit in Cologne, Europe’s craziest invite-only startup conference. During the 72 hour road trip the participants have to conceive, build and launch new startups.

On Monday 5 September, all buses will convene at the beautiful Corda INCubator in Hasselt (Belgium) for StartupBus Demo Day. All startups born during the road trip have to present their MVP in front of a bunch of experienced entrepreneurs and investors.

We’re very happy to announce the StartupBus Europe 2016 competition!  Our buses will depart on Friday the 2nd of  September and arrive right on time for the Pirate Summit which happens on the 6th and 7th of September in Cologne (Germany).

However, it’s not our first rodeo.  We also went to Pirate Summit last year and we absolutely loved it! The atmosphere is similar to SXSW’s in Austin though it’s smaller and with a German twist. Last year Pirate Summit hosted 1,000 carefully selected individuals, 200 of those being investors. The talks were refreshing and inspiring, the food and beer delicious, and what happened at the party – well – stays at the party. Oh, and Till and Claudia are just amazing to work with. Do we need to say more? Continue reading →

We had a few panel discussions about the impact of open-source software on tech companies with people like Jessica Rose (DreamFactory), Kris Buytaert (Inuits, Cfgmgmtcamp, …), Nils De Moor (Woorank), Charles Bailey (Bloomberg) and Lien Van Den Steen (DataCamp; they’re hiring developers).
