The European Founders Retreat 2024

This October, Startup Network Europe will host The European Founders Week 2024!

In the beautiful lakeside city of Locarno in Switzerland, Startup Founders from Switzerland and the rest of Europe will come together for four days of relaxing, co-working, and networking activities.

  • There is no participation fee. However, founders should book their own accommodation & travel.

We will also host The European Founders Week 2024 in the beach town of Hanioti, Greece, in July 2024.
