The Web Summit 2022, Lisbon, is dubbed THE most exciting tech conference of the year. And will welcome 70,000+ attendees this November. As unashamed geeks, we’ll be there in spades.

What is Web Summit?

Web Summit events have gathered half a million people across their events in Lisbon, Rio de Janeiro, North America, and Asia since its beginnings as a 150-person conference in Dublin in 2009.

Web Summit’s mission is to create software that enables meaningful connections between the CEOs, founders, investors, media, politicians and cultural figureheads who are reshaping the world.

The Guardian called Web Summit “Glastonbury for geeks”; The Financial Times “the world’s largest tech conference”. It’s THE place to be this November.

Weavr will be there!

Come and meet us – the Weavr team will be at stand 0404-38 in Pavilion 1 for the entire duration of Web Summit. Here are some specifics, other than our stand, of what the team are up to at this hotly anticipated event.

Tuesday 1st November – from 18:00

🏆 The Europas 2022 – Europe’s hottest tech startup awards

Weavr are proud finalist for this years “Hottest Fintech Startup” (yes Fintech is “hot” right now). So we’ll be donning our glad rags in the hope we might pick up an award *crosses fingers*.

Whether we do, or not, we’d like to congratulate all fellow finalists and look forward to celebrating with you on the night.

Wednesday 2nd November – 10:35-11:00

🦄 “How do you build a unicorn?

It’s estimated that fewer than one percent of startups in the stable get the chance to become a unicorn. With an upcoming recession, startups face even more challenges when it comes to raising funds, scaling business and reaching that unicorn status. In this discussion, companies at different stages of that unicorn journey share their experiences.

We’re sure this will be a popular one, so get there early to make sure you get a good seat.
