Formula E: The future of motorsport is electric; what better way to bear witness than experiencing the future with Formula E.
The series features 10 teams of two drivers each competing around the world in all-electric race cars, including four events in Rome, Paris, Berlin, and Zurich between mid-April and early June during the 2017-18 season. Each race runs for 50 minutes with a mandatory pit stop to change cars, as the batteries for each car only lasts so long; this issue will cease to be one in the 2018-19 season, when the second-generation Formula E car takes to the grid. Plus, fans can vote social media to give their favorite drivers an extra boost of electric power, the top three winning drivers receiving an additional 100 kilojoule of energy within a given window during competition.
Tickets to each event can be had through the links above. Some events are sold-out already, however.

Yes, Twitch is just a division of Seattle-based Amazon. But working at Twitch is the dream of hardcore game developers everywhere. Now, that dream is increasingly within reach as the live video broadcasting platform/gamer community expands in Europe.
Digiday UK is reporting the company is searching for:
• commercial executives to join the team in London including a director for a team that will broker deals with high-profile creators and creator networks across EMEA.
• a sales team for its Hamburg, Germany office on the way to adding operations in Helsinki later in the year.
Forget old-line scheduled programming. Streaming gaming already is a huge audience. Average Twitch viewership in January was more than 900,000 per day putting it on a par with the likes of MSNBC, CNN, Fox News and ESPN, according to Business Insider.
Right now, Twitch is all gaming, all the time. But Digiday says it will move into fitness, creative, music and others entertainment verticals.
Though the majority of Twitch jobs are still in Seattle and San Franciso, career opportunities in Europe include an account manager position in Hamburg (German speaking) and a data analyst in Luxembourg.
You can apply here.

One of the bigger scoops of the past few days is news that Tesla is opening a hub in Athens, Greece. Tesla Greece officially registered this week, with Elon Musk’s company expected to recruit up to 50 R&D staff.
At this point, it’s not clear exactly what Tesla plans in Greece. But the Electrex industry website quotes Tesla officials saying it will be recruiting engineers to develop new electric motor technologies.
“Tesla is building a small research and development office in Athens, which will be comprised of a highly-qualified engineering team. This team will focus solely on limited research and development activities to accelerate electric motor technology development through close collaboration with our team in the US.”
Right now across Europe, Tesla has about 1,000 open positions. That’s right – one thousand!

Zrce, Croatia – Spring Break Europe: As you can tell, the Croatian coast is the place to be when the weather starts to get warm. There are so many parties, it’s hard to keep track of all of them.
Spring Break Europe combines two competing parties – Spring Break Europe and Zrce Spring Break – into what’s touted as a non-stop mega-party. And indeed, there are daytime pool-and-beach parties and nighttime club parties … 72 hours straight of stuff going on.
About 10,000 people are expected for the event, scheduled for 31 May thru 3 June, and it will be interesting to see where they put them all.
Tickets start at 99 euros and you can get them via the SBE Facebook page here. Also, there isn’t much posted yet about the music acts, but they promise the FB page will be updated regularly … and we ARE still four months out.

THE NEXT WEB, 24 & 25 MAY, AMSTERDAM
This is one of Europe’s mega conferences, drawing 15,000 people for 2017. A big deal even in Amsterdam … this year, even more so.
For 2018, a jury selected by Chivas Venture – funded by the Scotch brand (part of the giant Paris-based Pernod Richard) – will award a total of $800,000 to social startup. Another $200,000 will go to runners-up. You can see the details of the Chivas requirements here for next year. And social startups, of course, are the startups that solve problems such as access to clean water or micro-loans through private, self-funding initiatives. (TOMS Shoes would be a good example.)
Okay, about the rest of TNW – what’s left to say? A giant conference addressing the topics of the moment. No surprise, this year, AI, Machine Learning, and blockchain are among the 18 tracks.
You can see them all here.
The speakers are typically Tier 2, so you won’t see The Big Names.
This year is no exception, but still a solid lineup.
• Cassie Kozyrkov, Google’s chief data scientist
• Anjali Sud, CEO of Vimeo
• Chase Jarvis, CEO of CreativeLive
• Mike Curtis, Airbnb’s VP of engineering
• A bunch of people from Reddit
Notably missing this year are Dutch entrepreneurs just as Booking.com and Adyen are breaking out globally. Guess they’re busy.
Tickets start at 199 euros, and you can get them here.
