PIRATE Summit will take place from 6th to 7th of September 2022 in Odonien, Cologne.

Founded in 2010, PIRATE Summit is a conference specifically designed for entrepreneurs on their journey. It is about connecting, debating and learning. Focused on real life experiences, learning from failure and success. It’s about the messy reality of the entrepreneurial roller coaster. Raw and authentic. 

Although technology is discussed at PIRATE Summit, it actually isn’t a tech conference. It is a conference for those that use technology as a tool to build something valuable. As such, it is more a conference about entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship.

At PIRATE Summit you can meet world-class entrepreneurs & founders from all around the world, get to know investors who are willing to invest in your startup & enjoy joyful days at the Odonien – a scrapyard turned into an outdoor art gallery!
