Our History

We’re at an inflection point. The kind of inflection point that comes around not once in a lifetime, but once in several lifetimes. We’ve all seen the world go through times more turbulent than our parents, or their parents, and the only thing we can expect for certain is more change.

There is no longer such a thing as a ‘tech’ industry – just industries that have been affected by tech. Just as the first industrial revolution 250 years ago left an indelible mark on the lives of the people who lived through it, tech is turning upside down everything we thought about work, social interaction, politics and life itself.

This year 53,056 tech CEOs, founders, startups, investors and political leaders driving change across the world came together in Lisbon for Web Summit. Over 2,000 of the world’s leading media attended. Together, they discussed the answers to the questions posed by the tech revolution we’re living through.
