We are thrilled to announce that Zocket has been accepted for the ALPHA Program at this year’s Web Summit in Lisbon, Portugal from November 6-9, 2017.
WHAT IS THE 2017 WEB SUMMIT?
According to the organization, in 6 short years, the number of people present at the Web Summit has grown from 400 to more than 60,000 with people coming from more than 150 countries!
The Web Summit has become “Europe’s largest and most important technology marketplace”. An unrivaled global meeting place for the world’s most disruptive technology companies and those interested in how disruption can transform their businesses and their lives.
WHAT IS THE ALPHA PROGRAM?
Earlier this year we applied to the Web Summit ALPHA Program which is exclusively for early-stage startups. Applicants to the ALPHA Program are then hand selected by the organization to attend and become part of the Web Summit and the benefits are more than obvious.
We are delighted to announce we got selected!! Zocket will be in attendance at this year’s highly anticipated event. We are lucky enough to have access to workshops, meetings with mentors, and most importantly, a one-day exhibit space to showcase Zocket!
We are more than a little excited to join our first Web Summit!
“We are thrilled to meet new investors and partners at Web Summit to leverage Zocket’s mission to provide an easier way for companies to match with candidates.”
