2012 was an exciting 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 proud to work with teams from 12 different countries, on 4 continents and we are supporting hundreds of entrepreneurs and entrepreneurs-in-the-making.

Because we believe in the power of results, we decided to create the Startup Pirates 2012 Annual Report. In this report, we disclose with full transparency, what we did last year, our successes and failures, our financial statements and also some fun facts.

In 2013, Startup Pirates wants to reach 20 countries, organize 30 programs and help more than 1000 entrepreneurs-in-the-making. We are deeply committed to building out robust and impactful programs and support not only our Pirates, but also the startup communities where our programs take place. We’re awaiting an ambitious year, and we couldn't be more excited.

May the fair winds be with us all!

All the results achieved lie on hard work and on our maybe naive belief that we can change the world, one entrepreneur at a time.

To the all participants, local organisers, speakers, mentors, sponsors and partners, a big thank you for being part of this journey. We’re awaiting a challenging year, and we couldn’t be more excited. Hope we can keep counting on you! You sure can count on us. May the fair winds be with us all!
