Starting next Monday, the world’s largest technology conference according to the Financial Times, will begin in Lisbon. This year the event has seen more participation from the African continent than ever before. From top speakers to startups set to compete among some of the world’s most highly sought after companies, here’s what they’ll be doing:
In the words of Inc. Magazine “Web Summit is the largest
technology conference in the world”. Forbes says Web Summit is “the best tech
conference on the planet”, Bloomberg calls it “Davos for geeks”, Politico “the
Olympics of tech”, and the Guardian “Glastonbury for geeks”.
Whatever Web Summit is, it wouldn’t be possible without an incredible team of nearly 200 employees based in Dublin, Lisbon, Toronto and Hong Kong; including world class engineers, data scientists, designers, producers, marketers, salespeople and more. They’ve disrupted an old industry by building incredible software and designing mind-blowing events – revolutionising how people and ideas come together to change the world.
As one of the world’s largest gatherings of entrepreneurs, investors, multinationals and thought leaders – over 120,000 people from more than 170 countries join Web Summit in Lisbon, Collision in Toronto, and RISE in Hong Kong.
