The next infamous instalment of European Pirate Summit is happening on 26-27 August in Cologne. Hosted in the “Odonion” – a scrapyard, which conference cofounder Waldemar Hein once told us is “the wicked and legendary republic of pirates, dinosaurs and other creatures you couldn’t even imagine.” And the good news is that we have a great giveaway to get you there for free.
The unconventional conference, which encourages more pirate-themed plays on words than any other (yes, we’re guilty too), took place for the first time in 2011. It promises to bring together founders, VCs and business angels to get involved in sessions and listen to big-name speakers. If you’re feeling a little penniless after a summer of conference-going, don’t worry: The conference team and VentureVillage are giving away two Pirate Bootstrapping packages, including one flight ticket and a Leancamp ticket (a day-long session run by founders who specialise in the lean startup business model). The giveaways are sponsored by Flyingfrom.to and Microsoft Ventures.
Sound good? Apply here and mention VentureVillage lottery for your chance to win – be quick though, the lottery closes on Monday.
And even if you don’t get the major prize, you could still win one of three “arrr” T-shirts if they tweet this: ARRR! Free flight and free ticket for @piratesummit. I want to go ow.ly/nWKxr #eps13 By @BizSparkDE & @TheFlyingApp
