The Startup Club was founded in 2019 by Olga Kuznietsova, Bryan Emerson and Oliver Doering with a vision of building a truly international startup community.
What was first named Milan Entrepreneurship Network - a series of pitching events organized by our CEO Olga in Italy - grew into a global startup network. Building upon the online entrepreneurial groups started on LinkedIn, Facebook and Xing by our CFO Oliver, The Startup Club expanded to over 70,000 members. We have started doing international events in the first few months of existence, and since then, we have expanded in over 10 different countries with over 20 managers building our communities across local startup ecosystems.
Our COO Bryan - angel investor, mentor, founder of Starlight Capital and co-founder of New York Private Equity Forums - has over 20 years of experience in helping startups fundraise through a series of investor networking events. The Startup Club, with over 100,000 investor connections around the world, brings this format internationally, in addition to pitch nights and startup meet-ups!
