In the run up to the Web Summit we’ll be hosting a series of discussions with past attendees, industry leaders, media, investors and speakers on how startups can make the Summit work for them.
We’ll broadcast these panels on Google Hangouts with two or three panelists joining Paddy for a thirty minute discussion. Startups can use the questions app on Hangouts to join the conversation. The second of the series will take place on Thursday, October 10th at 5pm IST (Dublin-time) / 9am PST / 12pm EST. We’re delighted to be joined by three incredible entrepreneurs who are Web Summit and founders veterans;
Ben Rooney – Ben recently joined The Wall Street Journal Europe as Technology Editor. In the past he has moderated Main Stage discussions at the Web Summit.
Ben Parr – Through his unique experience as a leading technology writer, venture capitalist and prolific public speaker, Ben Parr has coached dozens of young startups and Fortune 500 corporations on how to get attention for their products. He has also attended and taken part in Web Summit panel discussions.
Martin Bryant – With a particular interest in European startups, apps and the constant evolution of digital media, Martin Bryant is Editor in Chief at The Next Web. Martin was also a judge on the panel of last year’s Spark of Genius competition at the Web Summit.
