After having set sails in more than 30 cities in 18 countries, throughout Europe, Asia and America, and with 80 startups created so far, the Pirate program has set sail for Albania and Tirana will be the host city.
Startup Pirates @ Tirana is not a place to be taught, it’s the place to learn! In a one-week program, our pirates drive in the start-up world and have the opportunity and the tools to develop a business idea from scratch. But if you think Startup Pirates is only about teaching how to develop an idea, think again.
"Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn." -Benjamin Franklin
