Dear Pioneer’ Club members
On behalf of the Pioneers’ Club we cordially invite you to the PCU Get International in Madrid from Friday May 9th until Sunday May 11th. After the PCU Get International events in Berlin and Hamburg a few years ago, this year’s PCU Get International will take us to Madrid – the bustling Spanish capital with a significant entrepreneurial footprint. During our trip we will have several Get togethers with emerging and established entrepreneurs and will have the chance to exchange experiences and learnings, but also enjoy some of the beauties this city has to offer.
In order to make this a unique experience and to foster real dialogue and exchange the number of participants is limited to 14 PCU members only. Premium Pioneers have priority access until end of March 2014. During this period, regular Pioneers can sign up but we can only confirm your participation as of March 31, 2014. After March 31, 2014, any free spots are available on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org in order to register for this event. You will receive more information and payment details by email upon your successful registration.
The event price per person is 425 CHF in a double room (or 600 CHF in a single room). This includes the stay at Vincci Soho Hotel (http://www.hotelvinccisoho.com) for two nights, all meals and local transportation.
