Why Web Summit?

ICT West at Web Summit 2016

At its core, Web Summit is a startup that creates conferences, and in just 6 years they’ve scaled fast. With 21 conferences in 1, an amazing lineup of speakers and industry leaders from around the world gathered, Web Summit is a great place to see the global startup ecosystem and build connections that could last a lifetime. For the past two years, ICT West has worked with western Canadian startups before, during and after Web Summit to support them as they work with Trade Commissioners, pitch to investors and explore the opportunities of international business.
