02/ OPENING REMARkS
We still remember the day the name Startup Pirates revealed itself. It was in a rainy night and for 3 hours we were brainstorming about possible names. And then, someone thought about Startup Pirates and we immediately realized this was the right name for us. Almost 2 years have passed, since that crucial moment and lots of things changed. But, one thing remains the same: Our passion is still the same and more than ever we believe our work can make a difference in peoples lives.
2012 was an exciting year for us, seeing our work in action, especially the success of our programs and the companies and new jobs we helped to create. We are proud to work with teams from 12 different countries, in 4 continents and we are supporting hundreds of entrepreneurs and entrepreneurs in the making.
We are delighted to bring together entrepreneurs, changemakers and

Despite the trendiness of entrepreneurship, there is a very real and tangible benefits that derives from it. Most people tend to stay on the notion of big pay day, being your own boss or becoming famous. True entrepreneurs dont pursue such goals. Theyre irrelevant to them. Money, fame and glory are byproducts of hard work. There is no shortcut to life. True entrepreneurs, on the contrary are stubborn motherf**kers that keep pushing society forward. They are those that go on and create crazy projects within their companies that end up turning the corporation upside down. They are those that invent new ways of doing old businesses, burning century-old industries to the ground in the process. They are those that with a little innovation, theyre capable of bettering the life of those around them, even without resources, even with all odds against them. Entrepreneurs bring
innovation, jobs, life style, bettering of old industries, revival of cities, new educational models and, above all, they push society forward. People like Startup Pirates, that care about their homeland, that care about the future of their country and push to give birth to more and better entrepreneurs. Startup Pirates that sail the seven seas to share their knowledge with different countries, entities and ecosystems. People like Startup Pirates that believe that true knowledge, innovation and potential you need to tap into the interconnected world. People that believe that were not alone, that we need each other and that we can do things better.

- 14 - 04/ TIMELINE: STARTUP PIRATES STORY
This big adventure started as a hobby when the 5 founders got together with a similar vision and ambition. We felt entrepreneurship was a real possibility that has the power to change peoples lives and contribute to the growth of the economy. So, we decided to launch our first program that went
really well and the hobby got serious!
So far, everything went above our expectations both nationally and internationally. Just to mention some achievements, it was the year of our first program organized by a local team, the validation of our methodology, 1000 people/organizations directly engaged...
We are really proud of our accomplishments, but we cant wait for what is to come.
This is just the beginning!

We work with local organizations to identify when and where we are doing the Startup Pirates programs. The engagement of the local community is essential to the success of the programs.
After the program, we want to know what was the impact of the program and we always follow-up with local organizers and participants. We are madly committed to the maximization of impact.
