We’re happy to have partnered with another great event that will hit the European Tech Scene soon. Structure:Europe is an event brought to us by GigaOm and one not to miss if you are into cloud, funding, big data.
The event takes place in London on September 18 and 19 and will see some of the best people in the area come together: Lew Cirne, Sam Hamilton, Maryline Lengert, David Warburton-Broadhurs just to name a few.
DEBATE, DIVISION, DISCUSSION
Will PRISM kill the cloud, IOT, the data gurus on big data, cloud startups, cloud M&As, funding and valuation… These are some of the topics we’ll cover at Structure:Europe. See the full schedule here.
THE INNOVATORS, THE DISRUPTORS
Ten cool startups make their pitches on stage next month at Structure: Europe’s Launchpad and will be demoing in our Startup Zone. If you are a cloud or data startup less than 3 years old with less than $3 million in funding, attend for only £350. Read more.
RESEARCH AND DEEP DIVES
GigaOM Research will lead three workshops designed to explore the latest trends and assess the potential and viability of these sectors.
I believe that the venture capital business as we know it will not exist in 25 years. A more sustainable funding model would be one where everybody could participate

Here they are:
The three finalists of the LeWeb Startup Competition powered by HP just presented on LeWeb main stage, after being chosen by the jury afteer yesterday’s pitches
After much deliberation, the jury came to a decision…
THE WINNERS ARE….
1) Pricing Assistant (France) - a service that optimizes the pricing of online stores.
2) Genetrainer (UK) - the world’s first fully automated, genetically-guided fitness product. The system provides you with personalised training plans, exercises and advice derived from your own DNA, giving you a faster and more measurable way of achieving your individual training goals.
3) MyPermissions (Israel) - a suite of security tools for protecting personal privacy online. It monitors all applications across social networking sites and in the cloud, including Facebook, Twitter, Google, LinkedIn, Dropbox and more, and gives users control over the data that apps are able to access.
You can soon check our Youtube Channel to see the videos with the pitches.
We’d like to thank everyone who helped make this competition a success, our partner HP, everyone who applied, the startups that presented, the people who voted online and, of course, our incredible jury on day one, and to the final jury that was on stage:
Thanks everyone and see you next year!
Netatmo just announced it raised 4.5 Million Euros for International Growth and the founder Fred Potter tells us his fundraised was much due to his meeting with former head of Apple Europe Pascal Cagni at LeWeb Paris 2012.
Again, we love to see the success stories and look forward for more after this year’s LeWeb London - that you can follow here.
