We’re getting closer to Plugg, the conference that provides an overview of how the web is changing from a European perspective, organized by one of our writers from across the pond, Robin Wauters. The event will take place on the 12th of March in Brussels, Belgium, and will feature a host of top speakers from the continent, a possible 2-hour lunch, and a competition that aims to weed out the best Europe has to offer when it comes to early-stage web and mobile startups.
Registrations for the competition, which is dubbed the Plugg Start-ups Rally, are now open, and the deadline for registration has been set to Wednesday 4 February at midnight (CET). Any European early-stage company with a maximum of only one round of institutional funding can sign up for the competition by entering details about their team, concept and business model until Wednesday the 4th of February at midnight on this dedicated mini-site. All submissions that fit the criteria will be carefully evaluated by a professional jury of pundits and VCs, and twenty will ultimately be invited to pitch at the audience from the main stage at the conference.
Good news for startups: entering the competition is free of charge, so there’s nothing to stop you from registering right now.
We’re giving away two free tickets to the conference, which will go to the commentors that can best give us a humorous take on why they think European entrepreneurs can compete with Silicon Valley’s finest … or why not. Don’t forget to add your e-mail address and to make us smile.
