Crisis, crisis… we live in a world faster than ever. Communication runs fast, rumours go fast… But crisis, what crisis?!

Strategy and Business ModelsMarketing and CommunityDesign & User ExperienceDevelopment… Video… Mobile… Results ranking… Profiling… Advertising… It’s all the beginning, and we all know that!

This line is the Net Profit of a company founded in 1995 by Pierre Omidyar. 13 years but was about the others? They’re making their own way, and it takes time.

I discussed today with a young entrepreneur. There is still a lot of things to learn from how tracking audience, traffic issues, profiling changes, … This is was part of his analysis of Internet business actually. It’s not a new thing.

Just come to Web2.0 in Berlin and learn about best up to date practices. Come and listen some investors like Saul Klein, visionary entrepreneurs like Martin Varsavsky or Rafi Haladjian. Be inspired, feel inspired and leave bankers, politics care about coming regulations. Forget entrepreneurs with their business model, unless you’re on the Board or shareholder, it’s not your problem.

And please stop about crisis. Let’s work still, and make it big.

My point? We know the situation, we knew about the situation, “subprime” or not. That’s it!

Are you a hot technology startup? Are you in Europe? Do you have a new announcement you want to share with the Web community? On the first night of Web 2.0 Expo Europe we will highlight six companies on the main stage, presented in front of an audience of industry peers, media and VCs. The format is simple, five minutes on stage and a maximum of 15 slides. No demos. Videos are allowed.

Date & Time: Tuesday, October 21, 17:15 – 18:00
Submissions Deadline: Friday, October 10
Submissions Form: https://spreadsheets.google.com/viewform?key=pGj9uVDQ6OGMO4pja5WCsFQ&hl=en

A committee of esteemed industry judges will be reviewing submissions:

  • Brady Forrest, Web 2.0 Expo Europe conference co-chair & O’Reilly Radar
  • Lukasz Gadowski, Spreadshirt
  • Mike Butcher, TechCrunch UK
  • Christophe Maire, gate5 & Plazes

Companies DO NOT have to be launching but company, product or project announcements MUST BE new. Words of advice: aim to present something that is interesting but also entertaining!

I’m more than happy to encourage any entrepreneurs who will attend Web2.0 Europe and whom startup is corresponding to criteria to register this specific Ignite.
I’m organising Ignite events in Paris, and this is a really great space to give all the best from your ideas, your vision, your passion… No need for dozens of slides, boring bullet points, hours of blablablas: just the best, just the simple…
