I participated in the Belgian webmission in the spring of 2011 to San Francisco.
There are 3 important trade-offs for Belgian entrepreneurs who’re considering to participate:
First, you get the opportunity to meet and be inspired by people and businesses from the local tech scene that are instrumental in the tech business. Second, you’re surrounded by like-minded Belgian entrepreneurs. Being together abroad creates a much stronger bond that will prove to be rewarding upon your return in Belgium. Finally, as an entrepreneur, it is so important that you confront yourself with what’s happening outside your home-turf.
Via Webmission I got the opportunity to pitch at the SF New Tech conference, and show my product to influencers like Scobleizer.
The people of the webmission are doing a great job. You get an interesting agenda packed with opportunities to meet people and get inspired. From the premises of visionary kick-ass startups, an international conference, to over a beer in a loungy bar: meet, pitch, get inspired and have fun!
