Plugg Conference March 19, Brussels
March 14, 2008 Leave a comment
Next week we’re going to Brussels to attend the first Plugg Conference, a European Perspective on Web 2.0. A good opportunity to get an overview of where we are in Europe. They’ve developed an interesting programme, with speakers like Mike Butcher (TechCrunch) and Rebecca Jennings (Forrester research). There is a Entrepeneur panel, which is going to discuss how to conduct web business and raise venture capital in Europe compared to e.g. the USA. And last but no least, actually it’s a part I very much look forward to, there is the Start up Rally. Twenty start-up companies give a 2-minute elevator pitch to the audience, followed by feedback from experts after which the audience may select three finalists that will go into round 2. There they’ll give a 10-minute presentation after which the professional jury will select a winner. What’s the prize? No idea,but the road to it will be very interesting.
So my expectations? Inspiration, entertainment and good networking opportunities. I will keep you posted…
