Pirates Testimony: Amalia and João

1st Edition: João Remondes

João Remondes

It’s so hard for me to put into words how Startup Pirates @ Lisboa changed the way I see the world. I expected a basic entrepreneurship training session but I got so much more. I could talk about the friends I made and the mentors I got, but that would be to diminish the full scope of this grand event. What I really got was an life altering experience that made me open my eyes and see the potential of human connections and the power of being an entrepreneur. I finally understood that to be an entrepreneur doesn’t necessarily mean that one must have a business but that it truly means being responsible for your own life.

2nd Edition: Amalia Ghiban

Amalia GhibanMy first encounter with Start Up Pirates, happened in February 2012. I was invited by one of the speakers to assists his workshop, and so I did. I was amazed by the spirit of all the participants, and one of them became one of the most valuable person in my life.

For the second encounter I decided to be a participant. In September 2012, for 9 full days, I shared my ideas, I connected with people, I gave and received feedback, I learned, I was challenged, I danced and had fun, I worked hard and most important I became part of a great crazy family! A lot of the things which I learned and some of the people I met, became part of my path and ultimately, part of who I am.

And this was not enough, I wanted more. They say ask and you will receive, and that´s what I did. For the 3rd edition I was part of the organizing crew! I was behind the scenes: planing, going to weekly meetings, promoting, taking charge of the recruiting and selection of the new generation of pirates, preparing coffee breaks and delivering workshops. I did it all, with a smile on my face and with the willingness to host an unforgettable experience for the becoming pirates.

For me, Start Up Pirates is not a singular event, is part of my growth journey, is not about entrepreneurship is about taking responsibility of my own life, is not about networking is about connection with people.

See you soon, at the 4th Edition of a crazy pirate family!!!
