Startup Grind's first ever European conference was, in your words, "really inspiring," full of "amazing connections," and, by the account of one LivingSocial cofounder, surprising: "Every time I see Startup Grind," he said, "it seems to be getting bigger and bigger. The speakers and the quality somehow seems to go up and up. How the F--- do you do it?" As Derek would say, "great team = great results," and you can see some of the dedicated people behind the event above. We'll definitely be coming back next year - but if you can't wait that long, join our next Europe conference in London this year!
By the numbers, more than 40 Directors from joined over 30 successful founders and investors like Eric Schmidt of Alphabet to educate, connect, and inspire 1,100 attendees.
For a first regional event, it's a good place to start - but we're obsessed with growing and improving, and to do that, we really want to hear your feedback.
In the meantime, we're collecting all the stories about the event not just from our own live event bloggers, but from across the entire web. Wrote something and don't see it here? Let us know.
