If you are a geek, tech savvy, startup founder, investor, blogger or even interested in the web, you should be heard about the incredible Web Summit, where all the Internet met for this year edition. And closed today doors for one of the magnificent event made for the web community.
The BlogProcess team was there, watching how this event is shaping the entrepreneurial and tech industries, how a team can try to change our world to a better one and success.
This year edition was very big, and here are some stats:
– 42,000 people from 134 countries came to Dublin this week for Web Summit.
– There were 199,054 tweets about Web Summit over the 3 days and 4 nights. #WebSummit, #audiPITCH and #Dublin were the top trends.
