Today were excited to launch Host a Startup in partnership with Web Summit.
As our StartupDublinHosts.com website explains:
Host a Startup is an exciting new programme that matches Dublin based startups to international startups visiting the city during Web Summit. Hosting can mean anything from a half hour chat over a beer or coffee to four days of sharing ideas and developing new products together. Its a chemistry thing! So sign up, build your network and have fun!
In the tradition of this office, #HostAStartup is an experiment so were limiting the numbers this first time around. If it works, well expand the programme to international events happening in Dublin throughout the year.
Startups please note: Were prioritising Dublin-based companies who have live product and funding as hosts. And, you do not have to be attending Web Summit to get involved.
Id like to thank Mike and Carolyn at Web Summit for making this easy and fun to organise. And Eoghan, Danielle, Maria and David, students representing four great Irish universities, for jumping aboard to bring #HostAStartup to life. Its going to be awesome.
Dublin Globe is also partnering with Web Summit for the week of the conference. Derek and his team of writers will be bringing you previews, reviews and exclusive interviews for four full days. Thanks to IDA Ireland for sponsoring whats going to be Dublin Globes most hectic week yet.
Let the matchmaking begin!
