– Highlighting European Startups & Talent

Plugg.euThere is definitely more to startups than the good old Valley, and the upcoming Plugg Conference is certain to drive that point home. The one-day event will be held in Brussels, at the Belgacom Surf House on the 11th of March.

20 startups will be featured, and these are mostly active in the Web 2.0 and mobile areas. The idea is to provide these 20 promising companies with a framework in which they can explain what makes them special in today’s competitive market, and put them face to face with possible investors and allies.

Moreover, a list of speakers will take upon itself to illuminate the audience when it comes to the aspects that give the European scene an edge over the rest of the world. These aspects that put it at a disadvantage will also be openly discussed, obviously.

Ultimately, by bringing together both entrepreneurial talent and the insight of field experts/visionaries the event is shaping up as a promising one indeed. You can buy your tickets here.

“Plugg is a one-day conference with a clear focus on celebrating entrepreneurship and innovation in Europe and raising global awareness for those European start-ups in the Web / Mobile 2.0 field that stand out in the crop.

Plugg aims to provide a hands-on view on what’s happening in Europe, what the continent’s (dis)advantages are compared to other regions and what the future will hold for its digital industry.

In combination with an impressive list of speakers – one by one visionaries and/or field experts from a variety of industries and all with ties to Europe -, there will be a place for 20 promising start-ups to showcase their business ideas and realizations. Plugg wants to provide a launch platform for these emerging European technology, mobile and enterprise start-ups and place them in front of a professional audience tied to the technology, media and venture capital industry.”
