#Copyright4Startups! Ask-me-Anything Workshop

Tuesday, May 9, 2017
16:00 – 18:00 hrs followed by a reception
Location: Spazio HDRA’ – Palazzo Fiano – 1st floor, Piazza San Lorenzo in Lucina, 4 – 00186 Rome

Will the EU Copyright reform screw up your next funding round? Join us for a workshop on the perils of this new reform. Roma Startup and Allied for Startups will help you hack the political black box and our expert on intellectual property and information law will help you understand what’s coming. Be informed so you can understand and assess how the plans might impact your startup. Find out what you can do to change the copyright plans before it’s too late.

What’s at stake? Parts of the EU’s copyright proposal might:
● create higher liability-risk, i.e. making you liable for user content
● force startups to filter all user-generated content, i.e. you have to police your platform
● outlaw text & data mining for startups , i.e. the bigger the data, the bigger the trouble
● Create a neighbouring right for publishers at the expense of startups. i.e. publishers want your money.

Why is this relevant for you? These far-reaching reforms could affect:
● startups using snippets or links, media startups, search engines & news aggregators
● startups conducting data mining & data analytics
● e-commerce, social media or any other platform using user-generated content

What can you do? Getting you a seat at the table.
● Startups aren’t considered in the European Commission’s plans “towards a modern more European copyright
framework”. – Let’s change that!
● These far-reaching reforms might be a game-changer for your business model. Find out how to avoid that.
● Brussels is not a black box. We help you understand and hack policy making to bring an end to shady
backroom deals.

It was an exciting event for students and young entrepreneurs which provided them with the great opportunity to meet mentors, investors and other key players of the European startup ecosystem.

STARTUP IS MY-WAY was organized by MY-WAY – an EU funded project, which is part of the Startup Europe initiative. MY-WAY focuses on enhancing and improving the entrepreneurial impact of student organisations by connecting them with web entrepreneurship initiatives and digital business experts. The ultimate goal of the project is to improve the status quo for the benefit of Europe’s young adults who are considering to become web entrepreneurs.

STARTUP IS MY WAY was the 5th Student Enterprise Conference of the MY-WAY project and was held at the beautiful H-FARM campus.

One of my personal highlights of STARTUP IS MY-WAY was the panel discussion about female entrepreneurship, which was moderated by Europa Media‘s Krisztina Toth and joined by the female founders Eliana Solvi (Pinktrotters) and Sofie Annikki Dralle (StopMyCraving). It was a lively discussion about the hurdles and success stories of female entrepreneurs. The panel encouraged young women in the audience to start their own business and the panelists demanded men and successful business women to support female entrepreneurs.

Female-Panel
In the afternoon there were many great workshops, where the STARTUP IS MY-WAY attendees could learn about topics like: “How to pitch”, “Competitor Analysis”, “Business Model Canvas” and “How to learn from failure”.

Long story short: STARTUP IS MY-WAY was an exciting event which inspired young people to see entrepreneurship as a potential career path. The attendees left the venue with a lot of valuable advice, inspiration and some new connections.
