Le Web is People: Why You Do Not Want to Miss the London Edition.
There are many different theories about the real value of a conference. Some will say the line up is key, others want to meet people, make new connections and feel they had the opportunity to exchange inspiring ideas. Others just want a fresh look on a topic that matters to them and to find new perspectives.
Le Web community shares a common belief: ideas are people and the best way to come up with great ones is to have a chance to hear from the best in their discipline and to share with those you wouldn’t otherwise have a chance to meet.
Le Web is people. And here are the five reasons you are going to be blown away by what you can share with them.
1. A Powerful Ecosystem
How would you feel if for two days you could easily mingle with VCs, fellow entrepreneurs, early stage startups, more established businesses and companies and great media outlet?
Yes, we agree, it is pretty awesome.
Gathering such a great ecosystem is one of our biggest rewards and such a unique opportunity.
2. Talent from Everywhere
It is one of the most important aspects of Le Web and one we are very proud of. Le Web is not only the biggest tech conference in Europe, it is also the most global one. Attendees gather from all over Europe, the US and the rest of the world to join the event. That’s one of its key specificity.
“There is no innovative hub built on local talents” says Steve Blank, the father of the Lean Startup theory. Different cultures and knowledge is the necessary condition to foster innovation. There is no inspiring conference without a great mix of attendees with very different visions and roots. In London, the european cosmopolite city, it’s truer than ever.
3. London, a Dynamic Tech Scene
London is a very important place for global entrepreneurs. With the Silicon Roundabout initiative, London has become a vibrant cluster of innovative businesses and targets to represent the center of the technology economy in Europe. The London’s Tech City Investment Organization does not hide its ambition. Joanna Shields, a former senior Facebook executive and new CEO of the organization, recently declared:
“With the right boost now, there is no reason why we can’t make London the number one location for tech in the world.”
Le Web London edition was imagined around the genuine desire of the London tech community to empower their tech industry and our endless enthusiasm to support such a great conviction and a fascinating city multiplying initiatives for the new economy. We love this passionate community, and are delighted to be in London again this year
4. More Than a Trend, the Exploration of a Revolutionary Mindset
This year, Le Web London’s topic will tackle a completely new behavior that has emerged in just a couple of years. It represents thousands of new businesses in the making. With disruption at its heart, the sharing economy is primordial to understand. Beyond its impact, there is also this incredible resonance. The media has been all over it.
The Sharing Economy is designed by new entrepreneurs from a generation who know how to thrive during chaotic times, having lived and continuing to live through crisis after crisis. Many of these startups symbolize more than a company, but a new movement and set of beliefs. You will not only learn about the main actors of the industry, their new platforms and business models, but also about the key values we have to embrace now to survive and even shine in the shift we are living, a shift that started with the digital revolution.
5. Find Your Community Not for Just Two Days but For Years
We believe in networking, as a meaningful way to share. We are always thrilled when we hear successful stories or partnerships that started in between keynotes at Le Web. That’s the meaning of our event. Le Web community is based on amazing people that give and get even more in return. You will be surprised by the strong bonds you will create in just two days.
We can’t wait to see you all in London.
