Additional Information

Garden Talks are a weekly evening event (every Wednesday), hosted by the Web Summit team, at our HQ, for the Dublin startup community.

Topics are focused on the challenges faced by early stage startups. Speakers will be selected from our global network work speak about things like:

  • Product-Market fit & Minimum Viable Products
  • Turning vision into strategy and tactics
  • Go to Market strategies
  • Fundraising strategies
  • First hires, building a diverse team
  • How to HR, how not to HR
  • and more...

The talks will be a mix of prepared presentations, off the cuff conversation, and strong Q&A between the speaker and group will be encouraged.

In addition to our weekly speakers, we will be giving people the opportunity to address the assembled group -- this is not a pitching opportunity, this is a chance to speak your mind on any subject related to startups. Please email in advance.

Garden Talks is intended to be a safe, inclusive, welcoming meeting for everyone. Please see our Anti-Harassment Policy for more details.
