“Startup Pirates is a nonprofit global organisation building a better world through the empowerment of entrepreneurs in the making.
2012 has been an exciting first year for us, seeing our work in action, especially the success of our programs and the companies and new jobs we helped to create. We are working with teams in 10 different countries, in 3 continents, Europe, Africa and South America, and we are supporting hundreds of entrepreneurs and entrepreneurs in the making.
We are delighted to bring together entrepreneurs, changemakers and young wannabe entrepreneurs to inspire, influence, learn from each other and work together to develop business ideas and to launch new start-ups. I honestly believe that young people have an important role to play in our social and economic renewal, and I’m very privileged to be part of this change for good.”
