This June 7 and 8, Lisbon hosts the Lisbon Investment Summit, a surprisingly informal and slightly unexpected startup conference, that brings together Europe’s top investors, entrepreneurs and executives. We’ll have inspiring keynotes, insightful panels, great networking opportunities you would never expect, such as the Investors’ Breakfast and the sunset cocktail on a yatch, and many other activities. Join us for an unusual startup conference in sunny Lisbon, before the Web Summit frenzy.
The importance of focusing on product before Fundraising
Ragnar Sass is co-founder of Pipedrive, a sales CRM solution invested by several of Silicon Valley’s most actives VCs. Ragnar will cover Pipedrive’s fundraising process, but most importantly, why he strongly believes that startups should spend more time on product, instead of looking for investment.
Moderator: Ricardo Sequerra

The Process of Fundraising with cross-continent Investors
Investors and corporates from all corners of the world will be flying into the Portuguese capital for the Lisbon Investment Summit. It’s become impossible to deny that this city is absolutely buzzing in terms of tech startup activity – and the funding and exits will surely follow suit in the coming years.
