10 reasons to grab tickets for the first summit NOW

You have a million reasons no want to miss our first major technical conference, but here is a list of the top 10 as we start counting down 10 days before seeing so many of you in (hopefully sunny) Brussels.

1) We are talking near the fireplace with the luminaries of European technology

Kryshta Kerman

Christ is the co-founder and CEO of Wise. Wise is a global technology company that creates the best way to move money around the world. Launched in 2011 under the original name TransferWise, it is one of the fastest growing, most lucrative technology companies in the world and is listed on the London Stock Exchange under the WISE ticker.

Most recently, Sol co-founded Platoon (acquired by Apple in 2018), Zinc (jointly with LSE), Kano and Seedcamp (seed investors in UiPath and Revolut), and co-founded and co-founded Lovefilm International (acquired by Amazon in 2011). .

Haney Zacharyassen

Haney is the founder, board member and chief evangelist of Vivino. Haney, who brought a technological revolution to the centuries-old $ 400 billion wine industry, created the Vivino platform as a solution for those who are confused by wine. In the early 2000s, even before Haney appeared in the wine game, he felt lost when confronted with a wall of wine in a supermarket. He loved wine, but never knew how to decide which wine to buy.

Haney acknowledged that he is not alone in this anxiety, and decided to develop a solution that everyday, casual wine drinkers can use to choose the perfect wine at any price. This was Vivino’s original vision. Today, Vivino is the largest wine community in the world.

And all three will share their knowledge on our main stage.
