Talks about any kind of entrepeneurship, startups, ideas, crowdsourcing, innovation in Portugal. The portuguese nation was one of the first to discover new worlds, to promote globalization of commerce and travel between continents through shipping navigation.
The Web Summit and its 50.000 people army are standing at our gates!
Well, maybe not exactly a siege, that’s just part of my medieval nonsensical dream (watching Monty Python’s Holy Grail last
night wasn’t a good idea). But, the Web Summit is in fact joining us in
the quest for a better future, where technology and ingenious
entrepreneurs take the spotlight.
And you better be ready because the gates are about to open.
So, hear me out, because the Web Summit is more than the conference itself,
you have to know where to go. The real trick, experts say, is in
attending the side-events (aka parties) and meet with the
revolutionaries and makers of the future.
