For two days, the How to Web conference brought together the ecosystem of entrepreneurship and innovation, at the 11th edition of the event. More than 70 global experts from companies such as UiPath, Google, Bitdefender, Product Culture, Pendo.io, and more took to three conference stages to reveal the practices that have brought maximum results within these companies.
The fourth stage of the event was dedicated to startups, which had the opportunity to present their innovative products and solutions through the Orange Fab Demo Day, Startup Wise Guys, or Spotlight programs.
The theme of the conference „It’s Time to Build” was integral to the entire event, with the aim of reminding the participants of the speed and efficiency with which we can build successful products, teams, or businesses if we use the right resources. How to Web aims to bring all these resources together with each edition: international quality content, experts, founders and investors from around the world, and a community of people willing to build the future.
