Startup Rally picks up pace for 2014 tour
by Startacus Admin
Two startup car related posts in one day - but more on that later…
Last year we featured the Startup Rally, a literal drive around Europe over 19 days where a group of startup Founders accelerated around various European startup cities in an attempt to learn from each other, each startup city and also gain the opportunity to pitch for investment from a whole series of VCs and Angels.
And much like a wheel turns 360 degrees and a year turns 365 days, guess what? Startup Rally has come full circle and is back, and will be this year aiming to reach and visit 9 European cities with buzzing startup scenes - London, Amsterdam, Hamburg, Berlin, Prague, Vienna, Munich, Zurich and Paris.
The organisers, Leto, a London based Digital Innovation Agency, identified last year that whilst there are pockets of real entrepreneurial activity and enterprise, those ‘bubbles’ of innovation rarely get the chance to share, chat and learn from one another.
But slow down a minute - what are they looking for and how can you get involved?
This year’s event runs from the 10th - 29th September
