Over 200 international speakers and more than 3,000 attendees from over 50 countries will descend on Dublin next Wednesday and Thursday for the Dublin Web Summit. The good news is RookieOven will be there too.
Why exactly is RookieOven going? Well the reason for RookieOven going is three fold:
- Learn: How can Scotland get better? There are wealth of international talent heading to Dublin, the likes of Kevin Rose, Max Niederhofer, Robert Scoble and Mike McCue. A range of amazing talent from around the world that I’m certain will be sharing nuggets of knowledge that we will be able to rely on RookieOven.
- Connect: Scotland at times can be too inward looking and when it isn’t it tends to look to either London or The Valley. We should be reaching out to startup hubs around the world and making connections to the many interesting startups and talented individuals within them. The Dublin Web Summit is a fantastic platform for RookieOven to meet some of Europe’s best startups and bring them to the attention of the Scottish community.
- Promote: Quite a few Scottish companies are taking part in the Dublin Web Summit as exhibitors, Float, Stipso and PlanForCloud to name a few, and there will be many Scottish attendees. Through RookieOven we hope to promote these Scottish startups and founders and provide support to them whilst they are at the Web Summit.
I would ask those of you unable to make it to have a look over the attendees list, who do you think we should be speaking to? Who do you think could add a lot to the Scottish community? Leave a comment or get in touch and we will be sure to try our best.
