Web Summit 2022
Since the arrival of the Web Summit in Portugal, the presence of the Instituto Superior Técnico in this summit, to a more or less extensive extent, has been a constant. Whether through the students who volunteer, or through (former) entrepreneurial students with their companies or on behalf of their employers, or through a massive mobilization of the Técnico community or the presence with an official bank, the Técnico community is present in this great event that highlights and promotes technology-based entrepreneurship.
