What to expect at a Boardwave dinner?

The secret sauce to a really great networking dinner, is the calibre of people who are there to meet you, the quality of the discussion, which is interesting and thought provoking. And finally the dining experience, whether it's at a cool venue, or Michelin star restaurant. If you bring all these things together everyone has a great time, learns a little and meets new friends and colleagues.

VIP launch event

Under two years since its launch, Boardwave has become the pre-eminent networking community in Europe for Software Founders & CEOs, with 1400+ members. We are now expanding into Italy. Boardwave was founded with the goal of connecting European software leaders, from all stages of growth, to enable sharing of knowledge, expertise, best-practice and mentoring and development. All in order to make European software companies more successful.

To celebrate our launch in Italy, we are delighted to be hosting our first event in Milan. Please join us at our first VIP dinner, as we discuss the state of the Italian and European software market, and how we can better collaborate to be more competitive.

At our first VIP dinner in Milan, we will discuss the state of the Italian and European software market, and the conditions needed to scale and compete with elite global leaders, from Silicon Valley and beyond. 

Expect a healthy debate as we explore new technologies such as AI, and how they’re shaping the future of business, the challenges and opportunities of expanding internationally and fundraising in the current economic climate. 

Don't miss this opportunity to network with fellow Italian CEOs and Founders, and shape the future of our software industry.

In advance of the event, please take the time to view our recent White Paper on the future of the UK and European software industry.

The evening will be co-hosted by some key leaders in the Italian software community, and is sponsored by Upliift and KKR.
