QTeam @ How to Web 2019
Taking place at the end of October, How to Web is one of the go to conferences in Romania. It is aimed at professionals looking to stay up to date with the latest methods and tactics for building better tech & digital products. And achieving faster growth.
As a startup who works with both startups, as well as Fortune 500 companies this is one of the events that we don’t want to miss. It is a great opportunity to mingle and listen to some of the most well-known industry thought leaders. Because we like to share, we’ve put together some of the key takeaways we got from the event. Check them out below:
A very large number of booths belonging to Romanian startups
For a long time, Romania was considered to be a cheap outsourcing destination for software development companies. However, in the last years this situation has changed. The news outlets have been focused on just a couple of the big players in our market. But behind the scenes the Romanian startup ecosystem is vibrant and growing every year. As the How to Web event showed us this year.
An impressive agenda with really good talks
From venture capital investors, software development professionals and tech journalists to CEOs and marketing experts, this year’s speakers were a veritable who’s who of the industry. Just check out a snapshot of the agenda for day 2.
One keynote that stuck with us – Positioning in Crowded Markets
The keynote was presented by April Dunford, a Positioning Expert, Author and CEO @ AMBIENT STRATEGY. In it she talked about the fact that positioning is now more important than ever yet most companies fail to strategically choose a market position for their products and services. This is especially true in our field where the competition is always increasing.
Startup Spotlight – Prizes & Awards
The competition was open to all early stage technology startups in CEE. As longs as they were less than 5 years old and up to 1m EUR in financing. Prizes included 125k Euros investment, 1-day expo booth at TechCrunch Disrupt Berlin and 1M Euros in free benefits such as PR or mentorship. Again, further proof that our local startup ecosystem is starting to garner more traction and international attention.
