Webit Congress Startup Challenge Semi-Finalists
The winners of the 2013 Global Webit Congress Startup Challenge are announced today (3.09.2013).
It was an amazing experience and a proof of Webit Congress global impact over the entrepreneurial ecosystem. The 834 startups who applied for the Global Webit StartUpChallenge are coming from all around the globe - Europe, Asia, Africa, America, Middle East and Australia.
Special thanks to the Webit Jury members who had to work hard in order to select among them the Semi-finalists. THANK YOU!

Webit Congress does not take any penny from the winners for their stands, design, tickets, etc. We take it all at our exences and the startup teams only need to bring their laptops/tablets. We do this because we are here to help the starup ecosystem from all around the world! Because this is important for us!
Unlikely any other event - at Webit Congress we connect startups not only with VCs and angel investors but with their clients and partners. Among the 8000+ attendees from 100+ countries are the global leaders of the biggest ad-spenders, telcos, enterprise, the most innovative companies in the world and media. Fact which is turning Webit Congress into a unique, global meeting point for the both worlds of Enterprise and Entrepreneurs.
