We got an email today, that said “ALPHA: Our Decision”… i opened it, and BOOM, saw the following:
I started Web Summit 5 years ago. It came from my frustration attending conferences as a startup founder. I felt conferences could be organised differently using data science. That difference has in 5 short years propelled Web Summit from a tiny conference organised from my couch, to the largest startup conference in the world organised by a team of over 130 people full time.
I really appreciate the time you took to speak with the ALPHA team last week. I know what it’s like starting a company. I also know for the ALPHA team it’s not an easy task selecting startups, but they do an incredible job. Based on their feedback, we’ve decided to select you to be part of the ALPHA class of 2015 at Web Summit.
The program for the class of 2015 starts in the weeks before you arrive in Dublin, and continues long after Web Summit. You’re now part of a truly global community of incredible entrepreneurs, some of whom will build era defining companies. You can read about some of the class of 2014 on our blog.
I look forward to welcoming you to Dublin and meeting you in person on the opening night of Web Summit on November 2.
Founder & CEO
That’s what i call a good news =)
