Cities Traveled





The Buses.

For 2016, we had four buses lined up in Europe. Each bus departed from their countries and headed to the semi-finals at the amazing Corda INCubator in Hasselt (Belgium) and in the finals at the invite-only Pirate Summit in Cologne (Germany). View the teams and conductors on each bus below.

Pirate Summit

StartupBus Europe 2016 buses convene once again at Pirate Summit. The craziest, invitation-only early-stage startup event in Cologne were the best teams get a chance to present on the main stage.

The summit takes place at Odonien: the wicked and legendary republic of pirates, dinosaurs and other creatures that you couldn`t even imagine, in the heart of Cologne.

StartupBus Europe ticket includes the access to Pirate Summit, so you will have a chance to be part of ‘The Europe’s Burning Man’.
