It's the annual "Startup Matchmaking" event!

RSVP here on Meetup but to attend you must REGISTER HERE: https://startupmatchmaking-2017.eventbrite.com

Starting a company or want to grow your team?

Then this could be the most important event you attend all year!

Join us for the opportunity to take part in our unique annual event:

(1) Learn from our expert panelists what to look for in a co-founder and how to build the right team for your company to succeed.

(2) Then announce to the room who/what you're looking for so that you can take the next step. (NOTE: If you get a VIP ticket, then you can announce your company on the stage at the beginning of the event for 2 minutes, instead of 10 seconds.)

Come to this event if you're looking for co-founders, developers, or other team members (or if you are one of any of these). This event can help you build your company, find a company to join, or simply meet some great fellow entrepreneurs. Or just come to get better connected.

ABOUT THE PANELISTS

Aleksandar Goga is an entrepreneur and angel investor. Aleksandar started ServiceFinder.se with his two friends back in 2006. They quit school and their jobs as salesmen and decided to change the way people find a service company online. Aleksandar's focus has always been on operations, sales, building teams, and new business. In 2016 they decided to sell their shares to one of Northern Europes biggest media houses, Schibsted.

After the exit, the three founders are still working together on new ventures and looking for young hungry entrepreneurs with great ideas to invest in.

Ida Garamvölgyi started her first company almost a decade ago within recruitment. Today, she is the founder and CEO of UrbanUrban, which works with growth companies, startups and entrepreneurs as a recruitment partner. Since 2008, she has worked in different owner and company constellations, with both organic growth and the need to raise capital. Her specialist areas are growth, sales, and recruitment - to build companies with the most important piece: People with the right attitude.
