About Us

Here is why you can trust us to organize Startup SAFARI Guided Tours for you.
Let’s support corporate innovation and the startup ecosystem together!

Since 2011, PIRATEx has organized more than 200 events with a focus on startups & entrepreneurship and has become a trusted key player in the European startup ecosystem. With PIRATE Summit, we have organized one of the most well-known and exclusive startup events in Europe for more than 10 years. Together with over 300 investors and 500 startups from 70 different nations, we have gathered to discuss, connect, exchange ideas and celebrate.
We are experts in the startup ecosystem and share our knowledge to corporations and medium-sized companies in guided tours, workshops and seminars.
We have been organizing Startup SAFARI worldwide on a global scale for more than five years. “Open Doors” events have already taken place from Miami to Tokyo. Our network is constituted of many founders, investors, corporates, students and anyone interested in innovative ideas, inspiring stories and entrepreneurship. Startups have opened their doors in more than 30 cities around the world, allowing participants to learn more about their business model, their company and their team.
In addition to our “Open Doors” events, we regularly organize guided tours for and with companies. The program is explicitly designed for each client individually and put together according to their requirements. In doing so, we draw on our strong global network of personalities from the startup ecosystem. Through our guided tours, we enable corporations, mid-sized companies and SMEs to get to know how startups work, establish potential partnerships and make investment decisions. This is how we support corporate innovation and help the startup ecosystems to develop worldwide.

What others say 

“We hosted a session for the management board of a global insurance company at our fintech hub. Aside from a great discussion on the day itself, we were able to start a strong partnership with the company and we are in ongoing discussions on several ways of collaboration.”

„In April of 2018 the SAFARI Team organized for us the workshop “Vom MVP zum IPO” […]. Alltogether the workshop was very practice-oriented and built around our needs. Thanks to the expertise of the SAFARI team and their good connections into startup ecosystems our workshop offered great and exciting discussion amongst the participants.”

“The Startup SAFARI helped us to connect with proper business partners during our session. It took less then three weeks to sign an agreement with one of Germany’s biggest insurance companies in the field of logistics. What seemed to be impossible turned out really fast!”

“Excellent organisation of the Guided fintech SAFARI and dinner afterwards. Every participant (incl. myself) enjoyed the tour very much and got inspired a lot. The closed & exclusive setting that allowed us to network with the fintech movers & shakers during the evening was a special highlight.”
