About this event

Manuel Koelman will share the biggest entrepreneurial challenge his company, PIRATE.global, has ever faced: “Within a week all revenues went to zero; We had one month of runway left in the bank; We lost multi-years contracts; We had to repay a significant amount of advance payments” .

Join our Startup Grind online event on Friday, November 20, at 8PM (GMT+2), where Manuel will share their COVID turnaround story about pivoting, re-imagining an industry and building a durable company culture and remote team.

Manuel has built companies since 2003 and has experienced the entrepreneurial roller coaster first-hand. During that time he has managed companies of one (himself) and those with 100+ employees.

Since 2010 Manuel's mission with PIRATE.global is to actively promote and grow entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial thinking.

Also, Manuel helps corporate executives understand technological disruption and startup DNA and help them translate it into digital strategy and specific actions.
