Meet the who’s who of Europe’s tech scene – BizSpark European Summit heads to Berlin



The BizSpark European Summit 2013, which brings together a mix of startups, investors, media and political representatives from across the region, is taking place on 4 July in Berlin.

Now in its ninth year, the event will be held at Microsoft’s newly-opened centre on Unter den Linden – dedicated to “become a catalyst for collaboration with the German startup ecosystem”.

This year, the agenda focuses on how startups can think globally from the very beginning of their entrepreneurial journey. Speakers and judges slated to attend are: Project A Ventures’ Florian Heinemann, Fab’s Chief European Officer Maria Molland, Wellington Partners’ principal Christian Thaler-Wolski, Sunstone Capital partner Max Niederhofer and VentureVillage’s Managing Editor Linsey Fryatt, among others.

Additionally, there will be a Startup Showcase featuring 12 selected teams from Europe, who will pitch their company/product to the audience of experts and industry players.

Microsoft’s BizSpark is a free programme aiming to provide tech know-how, support and visibility to emerging startups and entrepreneurs. If your company is developing software, privately held, less than five-years-old and making less than $1m, then you are qualified to join.
