Turning vision into action: Building Europe's Tech Titans

At last year’s event, we travelled through time to the year 2033, a time when European Software leads the world. And if that were true, what would have to be true in the meantime.

Boardwave Live 2024, is about


Hear from inspiring leaders who are already running global leading businesses from Europe. What are their tips for success? We will learn about their journeys and what makes them and their businesses so successful.


It’s time to explore the rich opportunities, concrete steps and strategies that will transform your business into a global success and will drive Europe to deliver a renaissance in technology.

This year, we focus on the practical and what we can achieve: and by attending you’ll get to hear from founders and leaders who are currently scaling remarkable companies and pushing the boundaries of what’s possible, at every stage of business growth. We’ll celebrate the areas where Europe is currently flourishing, identify the ones we need to accelerate now to become stronger, and explore how we can support more business leaders to scale at a faster rate.


A day of Insight, Inspiration, and Opportunity

Conversations with leaders who are actively scaling incredible companies. These are the heroes of today and tomorrow, who have navigated the complexities of growth and are shaping the future of the European software industry.

As Boardwave member and Non-Exec director Gabrielle Hase puts it: "There's always opportunity and there's always challenge, but the sands are shifting, it's an inflection point because of AI and we'd be really silly not to make the most of it."

This is a time to ignite growth, seize opportunities, and drive optimJoinism throughout our industry. The day will be filled with inspiring stories, practical insights, and the collective energy needed to propel us into a prosperous future.

Boardwave Live is an essential gathering of Europe's software leaders. Led by Founders and CEOs for Founders and CEOs, this is your chance to learn from industry pioneers, make strategic connections, and be part of the collective effort that is transforming Europe’s software landscape.

Let’s ignite growth together and shape a future where Europe stands as a global software powerhouse.

What these guys are doing is incredible. Building an amazing, supportive, knowledge-sharing and skill-sharing community for the tech founders of Europe so we can give the States a run for its money. And according to some of the world's AI leaders in attendance last night, we are in the right place to be right now.
