The most anticipated startup events for Q1 and Q2 2021 in Europe.

2020 was a difficult year that brought a whole bag of change with it. Since last March, we have been attending our favorite events and conferences only  online, from the safety of our homes and comfort of the couch.

Many of those were postponed or even cancelled, and some of those might have been your favorites, but don’t fret! Here are some of the best startup events, I think any founder should be looking forward to, in the first half of 2021!
