From 26th – 30th June the European Young Innovators Forum, in cooperation with 5 of its European Hubs, will organise the Youth Innovation Week. This consists of 5 events in 5 European cities over the course of 5 days, focusing on developments and trends in youth innovation relevant to the local ecosystem. The programme for the Youth Innovation Week sets the stage for EYIF’s headline event in Brussels — UnConvention 2015 (1st – 3rd July) — which, this year focuses on “Game Changers: Growth Hacking and Scaling-Up”.
Each event during the Youth Innovation Week represents an insight into a local startup ecosystem around Europe, building up to our pan-European event focusing on the European ecosystem as a whole — UnConvention 2015.
In Barcelona we will address the key attributes for the internationalisation of the European startup ecosystem, focusing particularly on insights from the Silicon Valley. We will be joined by special guest Fadi Bishara, Founder and CEO of Blackbox, a global accelerator from the Silicon Valley. Fadi has in-depth knowledge and experience related to building successful startups in Silicon Valley and elsewhere in the world. For over 15 years, he has been successfully matching human capital and venture capital needs across the globe, guiding talented technology entrepreneurs in their path. As well as talking about his extensive experience in the US, Fadi will also be providing a live mentoring session for interested startups and entrepreneurs.
