At a glance
For the third day of PIRATE Summit, we want to do something new:
A retreat for 150 founders with intense discussion groups and new experiences. We call it PIRATE Circle. More on the idea below. Tell me what you like or how it could be improved. If there is enough interest, we will make it happen.
🔥 Quick PIRATE Summit update! 🔥
Last week, we closed applications for the Walk-the-Plank competition. We will announce the pitch startups soon.
Exhibition Day is filling up nicely. If you want to showcase your startup, get a booth.
When we started in 2010 we wanted to create a space to connect founders. To give them a safe space to have meaningful connections, honest conversations and help each other on their journeys.
That idea turned into PIRATE Summit you know today. 🏴☠️
This year on the third day we want to do something new. A different manifestation of the same idea. One that fits the current Zeitgeist.
I would love your feedback on it! 🙏
If there is enough interest, we will make it happen.
The power of P2P learning
In 2009, I was part of a small group of entrepreneurs facing similar challenges in their businesses. We met every other month for a few hours and had “real talk”.
It was extremely valuable.
Especially, because I felt like I had no clue how to run a business, and the world was in a financial crisis.
Three things stood out from that experience:
The best learning is from those going through a similar situation and are a few steps ahead of you.
Being part of a group of like-minded people helped me navigate the rollercoaster of entrepreneurship better.
It really helped to bond and create deep connections.
Over the years I have been part of several similar settings and groups. Every time the outcome was valuable.
I am so convinced that I want to bring that idea to PIRATE Summit this year.
Designed for entrepreneurs
This is what the day could look like: On June 29th we organize a one-day retreat specifically designed for entrepreneurs, builders, and leaders.
We create a safe space to learn, dive into new experiences and connect with each other. A space that combines deep conversations with hands-on experiences to gain deeper insights, see different perspectives, and take more deliberate action.
The participants will be curated to ensure a good fit.
The agenda will consist of two main elements: High-quality, hands-on workshops and Circle groups.
Workshops will be new experiences. Things you don’t usually do. With experienced instructors.
Circle groups are intense peer-to-peer exchange groups, curated based on the most effective learning experience for each participant.
Content in those groups is structured around a tried and tested agenda. You'll be able to learn from and connect with other entrepreneurs, builders, and leaders in your Circle, and gain valuable insights that you can apply to your own work.
There will also be plenty of moments for networking and community building, so you can connect with others who share your passion for entrepreneurship.
