Investor to startup meetings

Investor to startup meetings are a series of pre-scheduled, 15-minute meetings between tech’s most influential investors and our most promising startups. Investors select startups they want to meet based on their startup profiles and pitch decks – so ensure yours stands out.

Please note: Investor to startup meetings are only open to startups exhibiting at Web Summit Rio. Apply for our 2024 ALPHA startup program and join us next year in Rio de Janeiro.

What are investor to startup meetings?

Startups that purchase a package for Web Summit are automatically added to our investor to startup meetings portal. This is where attending investors view our startup profiles and select who they’d most like to meet.

If you’re selected, we’ll contact you with your meeting details.

Investor to startup meetings are designed to give high-potential startups an edge. This is where you’ll get insider advice on making yourself irresistible to investors.

Investor to startup meetings run throughout Web Summit Rio.
