Our experience in the Web Summit of Lisbon with Grapsway
As part of the Graspway team this year we have participated in the Web Summit event in Lisbon.
It’s an event with more than 70,000 attendees, the CEO’s and founders of the largest companies in the world, and with a lot of promising startups who have participated. Also, the main communication media of the sector have been there, more than 2,500 world journalists from publications such as Bloomberg, Financial Times, Forbes, CNN, CNBC and the Wall Street Journal.
This event has evolved in 8 years in a dizzying way, from 400 attendees in the first edition to more than 70,000 in the last one.
As part of a promising startup has been a challenge and a great opportunity.
The event gathers the best professionals in the technology sector with great speakers like Tim Berners Lee, among others.
At the event, the main technologies on the rise were shown, such as Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality, Blockchain and more.
The solution that we have been presented at the event, was a learning platform in which we have integrated Data Analytics and Machine Learning addons.
Web Summit has helped us to have a more clear vision of the needs and demands of the market and also we had the great opportunity to interact with potential partners and customers.
It has been a pleasure to take part of such a spectacular event that was a great opportunity to establish business relationships and to do networking within the sector.
This year more than 44% of the attendees have been women, which is a great advance against the gender gap.
At the event, a special mention was made to women in technology encouraging them to continue working to improve the visibility and economy of their achievements
Companies such as AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft, IBM, Accenture, Siemens and other giants of the sector showed their main novelties.
All the event is focused on networking and gives the opportunity to speak with the main mentors and investors.
All in an amazing placement and with a staging difficult to overcome.
Web Summit has become the “largest and most important technological market in Europe”. An incomparable world gathering place for the most disruptive technology companies in the world and for those people interested in how that disruption can transform their businesses and their lives.
