Last week we took off to Dublin to attend to Web Summit – one of the biggest tech events in Europe. We had a really good time.
During the first day at the summit we checked out a lot of alpha exhibitors in the enterprise field. There were quite a lot of talented people doing interesting stuff.
We had some time to listen to speakers like Phil Libin, CEO of Evernote, who spoke about the businesses’ need to move away from documents, folders and slide decks for the sake of productivity. We listened to Scott Johnston, the Product manager of Google Sites and Docs, who said that he has experienced that many enterprises are rapidly moving into consumer products like Google Drive, Slack, and Dropbox (…and Dreamler).
We exhibited Dreamler on the second day. It went really well. We presented Dreamler for 9 hours without a single break, and talked to a lot of people, including investors, large enterprises, startups, media and whoever came along (like a dairy farmer!). We brought a short demonstration video that was constantly looped in the background. A lot of people praised Dreamler’s visual language and interface, and that Dreamler turns individual to-do-lists into a collaborative visual planning game.
At the end of the day we were approached by a guy from South By Southwest. After listening to our presentation, he lent over ant said: “I know when I see something new and unique, and Dreamler is exactly that.” He also told us about the startup competition at South by southwest. We applied last Friday (fingers crossed).
At last we went back to a snowy Sweden with maybe 50 great leads. Thank you for this time Web Summit.
P.S. A shout out to the Web Summit crew who did an awesome job helping us prepare for the summit. Great work guys!
