More than 35 Dutch startups and Elon Musk at Websummit Dublin

This week many webrelated startups are travelling to Dublin in order to attend Websummit, one of the largest conferences for Internet startups. Here is an overview of the additional Dutch contributions, bringing the total number of Dutch startups to more than 35 companies.

In our earlier overview of startups presenting at Websummit, we already announced the first 24 startups from The Netherlands. These were all ‘alpha program’ attendees. The following additional companies have also been confirmed:

Two Dutch companies have been invited to the START program for mature companies. This more exclusive program (invitation only) consists of 150 older but still fast growing companies.

The organization also announced last minute that they have Elon Musk as confirmed speaker. Elon is the founder of Paypal, Tesla Motors and commercial space travel outfit SpaceX. “Elon Musk is the greatest entrepreneur of his generation. He is disrupting numerous industries simultaneously in a way that few have ever even attempted. To have him speak at the Web Summit is a great honour. I’m delighted that the Taoiseach(Ireland’s prime minister) will also join him on stage to close our largest summit yet,” said Paddy Cosgrave, Web Summit founder and CEO.

StartupJuncture will be present at the conference to interview the 35+ Dutch startups presenting and hear how they bring their startups to international success. If you are also attending and would like to share your insights, let us know.
