Selected Companies

#3 CloudSplit




As in the past, the LeWeb start-up competition provides a platform for Europe's hot new start-ups to present their business and technology to some of the most influential players in the technology market.

This year LeWeb Startup Competition is co-organized with TechCrunch Europe



The most difficult part of selecting companies for the LeWeb Start-up Competition is that we cannot accept all of the great 135 companies that submit applications.

This year the selection was finally  reduced to 16 companies in order to give more time for Q&A with the judges and the audience.

The competition will take place in the StartUp Room ( 400 seats ) on Dec 9th during LeWeb.

Schedule will be posted soon.

You'll be able to meet each company in the StartUp Competition Lounge where they will all have a DemoPod.
