The Next Web Startup Rally

yunoo StartupsLast year over 250 startups signed up for The Next Web Startup Rally. After multiple jury rounds the 24 finalists we’re selected to present on main stage during The Next Web Conference. This changed the lives of many entrepreneurs. And thanks to last years Startup Rally sponsor Sun it was free of any charge for the Startups.

This year it is the fifth edition of The Next Web Conference, it is a special year for us and we’re reinventing ourselves by raising the bar again. Behind the scenes we’re working on an even bigger and more prestigious Startup Rally then last year.

I hope to see you all there but in the meantime enter The Startup Rally now

‘Its not what you know, but who you know’ (Paul Arden). This is true for entrepreneurs growing their business and forming their teams and advisory boards. Alicia Navarro, CEO of Skimlinks recently told The NextWomen about the great value a diverse board has given to her company. At best, women should surround themselves with male and female mentors.

the Next Web - Day One

So we have the Next Web day one, and what a rollercoaster day with beautiful sunshine and up to a 1000 people all drinking coffee, eating biscuits and chilling out for one of the most relaxed conferences of the year. So why is Sun here ? What does Sun want to do in the whole Web 2.0 space ?


Help support startups, across Europe and give them the Support they need to grow and scale quickly and we do this by being present at these events to talk about what we can do, how we can help and get new companies to meet the ones we already deal with, such as Tweetmeme and Doodle. So I had the pleasure of hosting the two Rising Sun Startup Rally sessions, with 12 great startups presenting for 5 minutes on what they do, how they do it and how they make money, and what still amazes me is where are all these companies coming from, more and more weekly appearing with some creative problem solving ideas and focused on earning revenue from day one, which is a key change from last year.

Also some brilliant speakers and panels, helping educate the audience in what they have learnt in their experiences and sharing them with all, what Ive enjoyed is the openess of the content and speakers dialogue, just people saying it as it is.

So if you are the the Next Web come and say hi to the Sun team at the stand, you cant miss us.

Dont forget as well, spotlight your startup come and do your 1 minute elevator pitch at the Sun Startup Essentials stand then see it live on this blog, and being retweeted via tweetmeme, you cant miss our stand its the bright one like my shirts.
