Blinkist Founder and CEO Holger Seim will speak at our EU-Startups Summit in Barcelona on May 12-13 #StartUps


On May 12-13, 2022, we’ll be hosting the 8th edition of our annual EU-Startups Summit in Barcelona! At the in-person comeback of the event you will have the chance to connect and network with more than 1,500 founders, startup enthusiasts and investors from all over Europe, learn from around 70 prominent speakers, listen to educational talks with internationally successful founders, and find yourself at the edge of your seat during our big startup pitch competition. It’s an unmissable 2 days of action!

Today, we’re excited to announce a new speaker highlight: Blinkist Founder and CEO Holger Seim!

Founded in Berlin in 2012, Blinkist provides a selection of non-fiction knowledge in an app that makes it easy to fit learning into your everyday life. Highlighting key insights through audio and text explainers, called Blinks, original podcasts and author-driven content, Blinkist is on a mission to help people turn ordinary moments into learning opportunities – it takes just 15 minutes to learn something new!

Today, the app is already used by over 20 million people worldwide and at the start of this year the fast-growing company raised an additional €35 million to transform the way we learn and develop.

Holger Seim is Co-founder and CEO of this exciting startup and will be joining us in beautiful Barcelona in May for a fireside chat. Holger will share insights from his entrepreneurial journey and tell us about his experience growing Blinkist internationally. 

The EU-Startups Summit is right around the corner and we’re looking forward to connecting with all of you in person during the event. In case you’d like to join, make sure to secure your ticket now!
