A startup event by founders for founders
Unlike other startup events, Untold Stories prioritises the no nonsense approach and values quality over quantity.
Organised by people who have attended multiple networking and entrepreneurship-focused events as either special guests, speakers or general attendees, they felt there was a necessity to create something small and highly curated, which could actually meet the needs startups have.
Not everyone is looking for an investor, a future colleague or a COO. Some people may be looking for advice, the possibility to hear the diversified truth behind entrepreneurship, to be reassured that even those who are great today went through rough patches and didn’t necessarily have all the answers when faced with problems.
And this is what MY-GATEWAY wants to share with you. Stories which will mesmerise you, which will intrigue you and which will help make you stronger. These are the untold stories.
The first edition of Untold Stories will take place in Budapest, the ‘Pearl of the Danube’, on 7 November and it aims to create a community of change-makers.
Take a look at the agenda and the format of the event here.

Startup Village is a movement that’s hoping to change both the entrepreneurial world and the rural world.
It aims to build villages where startups can be created and run under the same conditions as in cities. New technologies allow us to work anywhere, no matter how remote. This requires the creation of innovative ecosystems in all villages. These local ecosystems must be connected at the regional and provincial levels so that they have sufficient critical mass to attract investors and facilitate customer search and international expansion. A high level of connection between local startup ecosystems is the key to creating a Europe-wide startup village.
This first Startup Village workshop brings together the main public and private actors related to entrepreneurship in Spain and Europe:
All these actors, under the coordination of Territorio Emprendimiento (www.territorioemprendimiento.org) and the sponsorship of Arturo Villar, CEO StartupCity Europe Partnership (http://scepstartupcities.eu), will discuss concrete mechanisms to implement the startup village concept in the medium and short term. They will discuss the best way to use existing public funds in public-private collaboration formulas, looking for the public funds to have a multiplier effect similar to the European public-private ventures.
If you’re an entrepreneur. If you’re interested in this new concept. If you want to be part of the revolution of startup villages, come to Villahoz and be part of this new movement that aims to revolutionise the rural world.
Tickets and extra information here. Congress will be held in Spanish.
