Web Summit is not magic. Seriously, you have to hack it. 45.000+ attendees are announced. It’s massive. Much more than a conference, it will be a whole city fuelled by enthusiasm during a full week and that’s what we should leverage on.
You can easily get lost with the amount of stages, people and side events happening while you juggle with limited resources such as time, team and budget allocated to the event. The Web Summit is at the same time a huge source of opportunities and a potential trap if you just seat there and wait for things to happen. Sorry to say this, but you need to act on it.
To ensure that you get concrete outcomes from the Web Summit, you should take on an integrated vision and define a specific strategy for the main objectives, whether they are related to investment, media, sales, talent or further opportunities.
That’s what the bootcamp “Road 2 Web Summit” will be about. In partnership with Startup Portugal and the Web Summit team, Beta-i will help Portuguese founders to plan a relevant roadmap. Trainers include Josh Collins (Startup Programme Manager @ Web Summit) , Marian Gazdik (Managing Director Europe @ Startup Grind), Felix Petersen (Managing Partner @ Faber Ventures), Clara Armand-Delille (Founder @ ThirdEyeMedia), Jorge Reto (Founder & CEO @ Xposition), Pedro Alegria (Founder & Creative Ideator @ TORKE+CC), Rita Mendes (Operations Lead @ Landing.jobs) and Maria Almeida, our almighty Duchess of Content.[images picture_size=”fixed” hover_type=”none” autoplay=”no” columns=”6″ column_spacing=”13″ scroll_items=”” show_nav=”yes” mouse_scroll=”no” border=”no” lightbox=”yes” class=”” id=””] [image link=”https://pt.linkedin.com/in/claraad” linktarget=”_blank” image=”http://rethink-beta-i-pt-beta-i-pt.beta-i.pt/wp-content/uploads/sites/25/2016/10/Clara-Armand-Delille.jpg” alt=””] [image link=”https://de.linkedin.com/in/felixpetersen” linktarget=”_blank image=”http://rethink-beta-i-pt-beta-i-pt.beta-i.pt/wp-content/uploads/sites/25/2016/10/Felix-Faber-Ventures-.jpg” alt=””] [image link=”https://uk.linkedin.com/in/jaimejorge” linktarget=”_blank” image=”http://rethink-beta-i-pt-beta-i-pt.beta-i.pt/wp-content/uploads/sites/25/2016/10/Jaime-Jorge.jpg” alt=””] [image link=”https://pt.linkedin.com/in/jorge-reto-4b4394″ linktarget=”_blank” image=”http://rethink-beta-i-pt-beta-i-pt.beta-i.pt/wp-content/uploads/sites/25/2016/10/Jorge-Reto.jpg” alt=””] [image link=”https://ie.linkedin.com/in/joshjamescollins” linktarget=”_blank” image=”http://rethink-beta-i-pt-beta-i-pt.beta-i.pt/wp-content/uploads/sites/25/2016/10/Josh-Collins-.jpg” alt=””] [image link=”https://uk.linkedin.com/in/gazdik” linktarget=”_blank” image=”http://rethink-beta-i-pt-beta-i-pt.beta-i.pt/wp-content/uploads/sites/25/2016/10/Marian-Gazdik-1.jpeg” alt=””] [image link=”https://ie.linkedin.com/in/griffithpaddy” linktarget=”_blank” image=”http://rethink-beta-i-pt-beta-i-pt.beta-i.pt/wp-content/uploads/sites/25/2016/10/Paddy-Patrick-Griffith-.jpg” alt=””] [image link=”https://be.linkedin.com/in/pealegria” linktarget=”_blank” image=”http://rethink-beta-i-pt-beta-i-pt.beta-i.pt/wp-content/uploads/sites/25/2016/10/Pedro-Alegria-.jpg” alt=””] [image link=”https://pt.linkedin.com/in/aritamendes/en” linktarget=”_blank” image=”http://rethink-beta-i-pt-beta-i-pt.beta-i.pt/wp-content/uploads/sites/25/2016/10/Rita-Mendes.jpg” alt=””] [/images]
