In 5 years, Web Summit has grown from 400 attendees to over 30,000 from more than 110 countries. It’s been called “the best technology conference on the planet”. At least it‘s different. Overcrowded, overwhelming and noisy. But you got to be there. It’s an intensive training for startup pitching, there are 1000’s of startups and 100’s of investors. But be careful, bring a spare suitcase to take business cards home. We’ve been there and we recommend it for entrepreneurs and for investors. For investors, prepare yourself to be pitched every 2 meters. You can see the talks online when you’re back home, take the opportunity to meet startups and other investors.
It was announced, that next year web summit will leave Dublin and come to Lisbon. That’s a great opportunity for us. A MUST GO.
