Since I write for TechCrunch from London, and since the rest of Europe is less than a two hour flight away, I am going to do some “Euro-tripping” over the next few weeks, criss-crossing the continent meeting startups and writing about them on TechCrunch (the image is courtesy of Dopplr). But I need your help. I’d like to meet as many startups as possible both informally and at the meetups we’d like to organise. I am also looking for local partners to co-organise them as well as local sponsors (especially if a meetup can coincide with a local tech event). Meetup partners and sponsors will get promoted as such on TechCrunch.com and TechCrunch UK. So here’s how to get in touch and here’s where I’ll be going:
Come and say hi, as I’ll be at this premier event for European startups.
TechCrunch Prague Meetup
(With Crunch Gear’s very own John Biggs as your host)
Major new event in Newcastle, along the lines of DLD, TED
Come and say hi as I’ll be at this influential competition for French startups.
Berlin TechCrunch Meetup!
It’s gonna be huge…
Come and say hi, as I’ll be at this cool new event for startups and VCs in Rome.
Techcrunch / TechLudd Mashup
A TechCrunch meetup held in conjunction with TechLudd (the Irish startup networking event). Watch TechCrunch UK & Ireland for details of the event, to be announced soon. Save the date! (A little more info is here).
Other TechCrunch Events in Europe:
TechCrunch UK has started organising events, including a recent London Meetup TechCrunch Dinners (our first was with Scott Rafer here). We are looking for other notable speakers for panels and events, so please get in contact if you are going to be in London at some point and we’ll schedule you in.
We are also planning some “TechCrunch Drinks” events in London. And we want to do other meetups around Europe (and I mean all of Europe, including Eastern Europe), so please get in touch about sponsoring and co-organising those with us. Thanks!
