Also, tell us if you'd like to receive invitations to the next summits,

Sponsors wanted

If you think you or your company/organization can help out, please reach
out to us at <2022-summit-team at> and/or
pass on our sponsor plans for entities donating at least 1000€:


If you are attending on behalf of your company, a corporate registration
to the summit is available, starting at 1000€ (including the
accommodation described below). Please contact us if you are interested
in this option. Likewise, if you or your company can pay for your own
meals, please do let us know as well.

Participation costs and financial support

Attendance to the summit itself is free of charge! (Although see below
for accommodation information.)

We hope we'll be able to confirm sponsors to support the event, who will
offset the shared expenses for everybody (meeting rooms, meals,
stationary, etc.)

In an effort to maximize inclusion and expand the diversity of the
community, we are offering additional travel support on a case by case
basis. See the event page linked earlier on this email for more
information, and tell us if you'd need such support.


The event space also has accommodation for 28 people in modern
two-person bedrooms in close proximity to the event rooms. Please tell
us if you are interested in staying at the venue; the lodging costs will
be 200€ for the above 5 days / 4 nights for one bed in a double (ie.
shared) room, inclusive of breakfast and linen.

Again, we are open for sponsors: if your company is able to we may be
able to support us we could offset the lodging costs. Please reach out
to us in that case.

Registration deadlines

Deadline for the registration is:

    24th September 2023

After that date we will start finalizing things so we may or may not be
able to accommodate you. Note that we have a limited number of space for
attendees, and acceptance will be on a first-come / first-serve basis.

If you plan to attend, you *MUST* reply to this email (ie. to
2023-summit-team at with:

    "I want to attend!"

If you do not plan to attend, a short "no thank you" response would also
be highly appreciated so we know that you are still interested in our
project. Equally, please do tell us if we should stop with these
invitations in the future.

Meeting goals and likely topics

First and foremost, we want to meet each other and see how we are doing
a year after our last meetup! :)

After that, the exact content of the meeting is going to be shaped by
the participants: see the event page on the website for some examples.
The meeting will have a different shape depending on how many people
will register for attendance.

We plan to ask Gunner from Aspiration for help running the meeting just
as we did in the past. We will collect your input in subsequent emails
to make the best of everyone's time.

Please note that we are very likely to spend large parts of the meeting
away from laptops and closer to Post-It notes. If you have attended
previous summits, you should know how this works! ;)


If you need to get in touch with the organizing team, you can write to:

We recommend attendees to wait for our 100% final confirmation of the

This should happen by the end of September.

Looking much forward to seeing you there! And please do reply if you
