Update on TNW @ Barcelona: First speakers + early-bird tickets about to end

UPDATE 4 July: For the latest information, on speaker line-up and program, please go here.

UPDATE 21 June: New speakers have been added! See below for the full list. Also, today is your last day to get early bird tickets. Get moving!

In case you hadn’t heard yet, we’re hosting a cool mini-conference in the beautiful capital of Catalonia on the evening of Thursday 11 July.

We’re organizing the event in collaboration with the local tech community brewers from Barcelona.IO and the fine beer brewers at Estrella Damm.

TNW @ Barcelona – the details

Date and time: Thursday 11 July, from 7PM to 9PM (followed by a meetup with drinks for everyone)

Venue: Antiga Fàbrica Estrella Damm (C/ Rosselló 515, Eixample district – a short walk from the awesomeness that is Sagrada Família)

Where can I register? Right here.


We’re still working on the final format and speaker line-up, but these are some of the people you will be hearing from:

Mark Henkel: Co-founder of Rocket Internet-backed Paymill
John Britton: GitHub
Luis Cabiedes: Super angel investor
Ela Madej: Serial entrepreneur (Applicake, Base CRM, European Rails conference Railsberry)
Marion Chevalier: Pitching and public speaking coach

Martin Mignot: Principal and early-stage investor at Index Ventures (involved in companies like SoundCloud, Seedcamp, HouseTrip and Erply)

Andrés Bou: Co-founder of social gaming phenomenon Social Point

Marcel Rafart: Founding partner of VC firm Nauta Capital, executive board member of both Privalia and Groupalia

Robin Wauters (aka, me): European Editor of the Next Web

Vicenç Martí: CEO of that other social gaming phenomenon, Akamon

Ángel García: Founding partner of Lanta Digital Ventures

Jochen Doppelhammer: Founder and CEO, Yuilop

We will also be doing something fun to highlight some very early-stage yet promising Barcelona startups – more on that later.

We’ll be adding more speakers over time and will post another update once we have more details to share on both format and line-up.

Until Friday next week, you can register for 15 euros; after that the price will be 20 euros. Note that this includes entrance for the event and as much Estrella Damm beer as you want afterwards as you discuss which keynote or panel you liked best. If you insist, we’ll also serve water.

The original cut-off date for the early-bird tickets was today, but since we’re a tad late announcing our first speakers for the event (mea culpa) we’ve decided to extend it until next week. Note that the capacity of the venue we booked is capped at 250 seats, so space will be limited.

We hope you register and are looking forward to seeing you!
