Startup bearpit: How teams are fighting for attention at the Web Summit


thenextweb.comTech conferences tend to have no trouble selling booths to startups – the promise of attracting press and investor attention is a major draw. But at the Web Summit in Dublin, where hundreds of companies are vying for attention over three days, actually getting anyone to stop and chat can be a frustrating experience for those who have shelled out their own little spot.

I’m as guilty as other media of tending to ignore startup booths – it can be hard to pick out the best teams when I have pre-booked meetings and need to set aside time to write, too. So, today I decided to enter the fray and meet 11 companies, to find out a bit about what they do anyhow they’re tackling the fight for attention.
