Startup Europe will see you at Web Summit!

Web Summit defines itself as Europe’s Largest Technology Marketplace. Over 51,000 people will be attending the event in Lisbon on November 7-10th!

The interesting thing about Web Summit is that it acts as a meeting point to bring together all those involved in technology: 7,000 CEOs, leading academics, people who are at the forefront of tech and business, cultural icons and influencers, key global leaders. For this reason, Web Summit is a great place to learn, discuss new ideas and network at the different activities held throughout the event, such as conferences, talks and discussions.

Startup Europe will be at the event with a stand (number 624), and we would love to see you there. Come to the stand to find out more about the Startup Europe initiative in general, as well as the Startup Europe projects: Welcome, ePlus, Startup Scaleup, Twist, Digistart. Some representatives of these projects will also be at the stand, so come and say hello!

In addition, a number of the panels and discussions at Web Summit will be hosted by public EU figures (below, in bold). To find out more, please see the list below!
