min read

Forbes writes “the best technology conference on the planet”, we say the event where future is born.

Web Summit brings together 42,000+ people and companies with the aim to redefine the tech industry and is a great opportunity for startuppers to get in touch with tech experts and investors, and live a 360° experience surrounded by innovation and technology.

After winning last years’ Start-Up Lab Demo Day, the team EEGMate had the opportunity to fly to Lisbon and participate in this event with their innovative device that reduces preparation time for the electroencephalogram.

We asked them their thoughts and experience.

The experience at the web summit was fantastic. Thanks to this opportunity, I was able to grow a lot on a personal and educational level. I met many people from all over the world with different backgrounds with whom to compare and understand their business and innovation visions. The event called interested people from all over the world with whom you could get in touch by scanning their QR code on the pass or directly using the event app. I and my team have met and also get in touch with very influential people in our sector (neuroscience) and learned a lot from them. In fact, we have received many useful tips regarding our Startup and Business vision. During the experience, we were also able to participate in many topical events of different types and we listened to a lot of success stories, talked and exchanged ideas. Several prominent people attended the event including: the Mayor of the city of Lisbon Carlos Moedas, the Prime Minister at Government of Portugal Antonio Costa, chess champion Garry Kasparov, and several members of very famous companies such as Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Google, Bedrock, Siemens, Accenture and many more. There were talks about Auto & Tech, Robots, Renewable energies, 3dPrinting Health, Finance, Investments, Venture capital, Informatic, Data & Big Data and a lot of topics related to the growth of Business and Startups. Absolutely an all-in event in the world of innovation and entrepreneurship!”


Every year, we at CLab Trento aim to give the best possible experience to our students. Start-Up Lab in addition to the valorization of different competencies and knowledge of each team member wants also to give a real possibility to develop their business idea. For this reason, every year we offer the chance to join international events in the world of innovation and entrepreneurship.

The new edition of Start-Up Lab is approaching. Do you want to know more about it?
