Web Summit has four halls, and one arena… but Lisbon hosts so many other summit related events. Finding them can be tricky - but here are a few listed on Eventbrite/Meetup et al… you might want to check out as your sort out your calendar!
If anyone knows of other events worth sharing please, please do. I imagine this barely scratches the surface. Also, why not join this open slack channel to connect with people in Lisbon and get the most out of your trip?
I love this idea!! One of the trickiest things to do is meet people, so the idea of randomly bringing someone you don’t know to dinner means everyone is in the same boat and keen to chat and introduce each other. As a first time attendee last year, these kind of events were incredible!
WOW Dinner - The Only Women Event pre-dinner
Anything supporting inclusive and a diverse tech sector is worthy of checking out! Isabel van der Kolk is the founder and organiser, and here is a link to a little more info! http://www.portugalcentral.online/2017/09/25/celebrating-women-technology-dinner-lisbon/
Arriving Sunday and looking for a decent start to your week in the City of Light? Check out this breakfast...
A chance to meet the Techstars MDs and programme staff. Given how many companies they’ve helped grow they’re worth attending a free event to chat to. A late lunch/networking session to ease you into new surroundings perhaps?
Lisbon Startup Tour 2018
A chance to find out why Lisbon is not simply the new Valley or the next Berlin. This tour aims to showcase why the city is viewed as one of the best emerging tech hubs in the world!
Unicorns & Indexes: a cocktail with Euronext and Beta-i
A lot of people don’t really understand innovation. Therefore events based around innovation with tips (whether you like them or not) is always handy!
An opportunity for local entrepreneurs to showcase their ideas and iterate. Could definitely be fun and informative!
MLOVE Salon Lisbon - presented by Hamburg Invest & Berlin Partner
Go to Lisbon, find out about Germany. Sure, why not?! But seriously, entrepreneurs talking about tech making the future better, we love. #techforgood
In Ministerium Club, it's a night kicking off at 10pm billed as a chance to relax and meet people, with multiple rooms to chill and/or dance.
Wednesday AND Thursday night. Rooftop lounge, jazz band, free drinks. I’m in.
€118.45 – €139.77
Again, over at Tech Talks we love to showcase diversity. The awards brings together some of the most innovative, entrepreneurial and inspiring women in tech together; like Polina Frolova-Montano (our podcast guests really are the best)!
Tactical tips on growing your startup. Why wouldn’t that be useful?
I'll be gone (gutted), but Lisbon is home to so much wicked music. This will be a great wind down at the end of the Summit. This event is in it's 3rd year, and invite only... so I'm quite pleased we're able to share this one with you!
Sign up to the alerts on Night Summit https://websummit.com/night-summit - in the evenings the conference spills out into the bars and clubs of Lisbon. Sunset Summit is a great way to get your night started, and meet new friends, before you grab food and head on out!
We’ll send a quick alert when we post a new podcast
