GO Youth Conference (GYC) is the living proof that youngsters in Portugal are sassy, but able to live up to the expectations they create.

GYC is created by young people, for young people. What started as the 17-year-old Tiago Vidal‘s cool project, is already in the fourth edition. Along the years, the one that’s now the biggest startup conference in Portugal, got us used to have a well-crafted line up with some names that are not very usual to see here at Lusitania. And this year is no exception.

If you’re counting on being one of the 500 expected attendees, you’ll have the opportunity to see speakers from Silicon Valley, New York, London, Berlin and Portugal. Lucky enough, you might hang out with them in some of the side events the organization has prepared, like the Lisbon Cool Tour or one of the parties. Some confirmed speakers are:

Speakers GYC - Matthew O. Brimer (General Assembly), Ray Chan (9GAG) and Ciaran O'Leary (EarlyBird Venture Capital)

Speakers GYC - Adam D'Augelli (True Ventures), Morten Primdahl (Zendesk) and Burt Helm (Inc.)

From GYC’s website

Happening in Lisbon on the 18th and 19th of April 2015, GYC promises to inspire and empower young people to create their own future and to give room for people to exchange ideas, start meaningful conversations and be introduced to powerful content that can help them to thrive and take charge of their economic future.

See you there?
