MY-GATEWAY representatives are attending Web Summit tech conference in Lisbon this year (5-8th of November), and really want to bring top-notch startups with them! This is surely an opportunity you cannot miss.
By attending Web Summit, your possibilities to boost your growth potential will expand exponentially. As you may already know, our main focus are CEE startups from the ecosystems we work with (i.e. Czech Republic, Slovenia and Romania) but if you have some other connection with those ecosystems - maybe you run your business activities in the CEE region? - then you are most likely able to apply!
Make sure you apply through this F6s application: https://www.f6s.com/my-gatewaytowebsummit18
Deadline for application is on 27th July. Then you should be hearing from our evaluators by 1st August and by 8th August you should be able to confirm your availability to attend the Portuguese event. MY-GATEWAY will only provide you with the entry ticket, unfortunately no travel and accomodation costs will be covered.
The criteria we will follow to make the final decision are the following:
- Startups at a more advanced phase of development of their idea, have an existing prototype and/or viable business plan. Applications from idea stage startups won’t be taken into consideration;
- Startups that are running or interested in running their activities in the CEE region;
- Startups that have a unique idea that stands out from the rest of the competitors.
What is Web Summit?
Web Summit is the largest tech conference in the world and is always a complete success. Like every year, we expect to gather in Lisbon over 70.000 attendees, 1.200 speakers and 170 countries for 3 full days of networking and doing business. Web Summit also gathers the entire investor ecosystem, from big fishes to the most relevant angels and venture investors, as well as over 2,500 international media outlets. Here, startups have lots of opportunities to gain exposure, such us networking, presenting their business and participating in panels, among others. MGW just cover the entry ticket, no the travel cost or any financial support.
