We’ve seen some seriously impressive startups exhibiting at Web Summit from Ireland over the years and nothing gives us more pride than seeing them Go Global.

To help Irish startups on their way we launched the Go Global competition earlier this year. We’re delighted to announce the three winners who we are sending around the globe to pitch for success.

We give you the three winners: 



Founded by “Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur 2014” winner, Eamon Keane, and Cyclone Couriers CEO, Simon Pleass, the Xpreso solution eliminates the “Sorry we missed you” card that online shoppers receive when they are not at home to accept their delivery. Xpreso raised US$1m in seed funding recently.




Anatoly Lebedev and Sergey Lyubka founded Cesanta in 2014 and aim to become leaders in the Internet of Things space. They have developed software designed to enable network communication between devices or appliances using secure connectivity and data intelligence.

cesanta2 will replace Pointy as a Go Global participant due to unforeseen circumstances preventing Pointy travelling to RISE in Hong Kong. was established by Sean Fee and Makara Sok in January 2014. They are a social discovery discovery platform for the gaming industry. The platform helps players, groups, teams and companies to discover and connect with others based around their similar gaming interests.


All three winners will be given the opportunity to be flown to Web Summit’s sister conferences in New Orleans and Hong Kong.

Make sure to keep an eye out for these guys in the future, we’re sure it won’t be the last you’ll see of them.
