The participants were carefully selected after the open call for participation which was launched on July 15, 2022.
The purpose of this trip is to create meaningful connections with relevant key players and attract investments and genuine interest in the Moldovan tech talents and startups.
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.
It goes beyond any ordinary conference experience. And to embrace the extraordinary, it takes place in one of Cologne’s most unique locations: Odonien – a scrapyard turned into an outdoor art gallery. It is the perfect pirate location and offers enough space for robots, fire, and networking.
The overall theme for 2022 is #RaiseYourself, following topic tracks: Raise Yourself, Re-humanize work, Startup tactics, Founder stories, Climate Tech, and Tech trends.
The agenda is proposed by the community and heavily focuses on P2P learning and interactive formats like Campfires, Clinics, Masterclasses, 1-on-1 meetings, and selected highlight keynotes.
The participation of Moldovan startups at Pirate Summit 2022 is organized by Technovator with the support of the The Moldova Future Technologies Activity (FTA) funded by USAID and Sweden.
