The annual Web Summit in Dublin is one of the leading European startup conferences. Growing at an unprecedented pace since its founding in 2010 the conference now welcomes in just a few more days a staggering number of more than 30.000 visitors.
The conference will kick-off on November 3 and will feature speakers such Stewart Butterfield of Slack, John Collison of Stripe and Ed Catmull of Pixar, among others. Previous high profile speakers have been Elon Musk, Niklas Zennstrom, Jack Dorsey and Reed Hasting.
Running for its 6th consecutive year the conference brings startups, corporates and tech super stars together. But also thought leaders that talk about the latest developments in the fields of robotics, fintech, UX and design, sports and topics such as leadership.
Last year, 62 Dutch startups were at the Websummit. This year the Web Summit informed us that 48 Dutch startups are attending. But we could not verify if all of them were indeed (Dutch) startups, because lack of a website or other information with which we could corroborate the info. Some startups reached out to us, pointing out that they were not mentioned on the list, while they were in fact attending the event.
So after adding and subtracting some startups form and to the list we came to a total of Dutch 45 startups attending the Web Summit 2015.
If you’re going to the Web Summit and you’re not on the list please reach out to us. Get in touch with us via email or Twitter.
