Ken Segall, Dave McClure, Julia Hartz at The Europas – Voting ends today!

TechCrunch TechCrunch 2/06/2016 Mike Butcher

With less than 2 weeks to go to this year’s The Europas Startup Conference and Awards — the new type of tech conference devised in partnership with Techcrunch — I’m delighted to announce the full speaker line up for the day.

In addition, the public vote on the shortlist across 27 categories ends today. You can get your final votes in here.

I’m thrilled to announce that Ken Segall, legendary former Apple creative director, will be speaking at the Europas.

Segall is the design and creativity guru who named the i-Mac and initiated the i-frenzy. He’s the author of New York Times Best Seller, “Insanely Simple: The Obsession That Drives Apple’s Success”. With a CV encompassing iconic brands IBM, BMW, Intel and Dell, Ken’s close working relationship with Steve Jobs first at NeXT and then at Apple, was a natural progression. Leading the team that created Apple’s renowned Think different campaign, Ken embraced Jobs’ ‘simplicity’ principle which saved Apple from near-extinction in 1997 to become one of the world’s most valuable companies.

I’m also excited to have Dave McClure joining The Europas. Dave is the founding partner of 500 Startups, a venture capital firm and startup incubator in Silicon Valley founded by PayPal and Google alumni, with over $250M under management. He has been an investor in hundreds of companies around the world such as Credit Karma, Twilio, MakerBot, Wildfire Interactive, Viki, Mashery, SendGrid, Mint.com, and SlideShare, among others.

Julia Hartz is responsible for the vision, strategy and growth of Eventbrite. Under her leadership, the company has become the largest global ticketing and event technology platform and received multiple awards for workplace culture and performance. These accolades include Fortune’s 100 Best Workplaces for Women and also for Millennials, Glassdoor’s 2016 Best Places to Work, and San Francisco Business Times’ Best Places to Work in the SF Bay Area list for seven years straight. Julia has been honored as one of Fortune’s 2015 40 Under 40 business leaders, Inc.’s 35 under 35 in 2014, and Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Entrepreneurs in 2013.
