Despite a water shortage in Dublin and an internet shortage at RDS, the Web Summit got off to a excellent start yesterday. We launched in the Google Play Store and Albert, Oliver and Clement kept very busy all day welcoming a nonstop stream of curious summit attendees and media who visited our stand in the STARTGlobal area of the exhibit hall. Our CEO Albert Szulman said, “Thank you all for the tremendous support.”
In addition to meeting with some very interesting startups during Speed networking, one of our first test drivers, Eric Barnes, came by to say hello.
We announced the winner of our Sony SmartWatch drawing, Paris Gaudet from Innovative Island, Vancouver
Overall we are thrilled with the feedback received so far from both locals and international web professionals at the Web Summit, and we are already up to 3000 downloads!
In addition to the enthusiasm from attendees here in Dublin, check out these writeup in The Silicon Republic, The Next Web, Android Headlines and others:
