The fifth iteration of How To Web, Romania’s top startup and entrepreneurship conference is yet again taking place in Bucharest from November the 20th through 21st. Over 70 speakers coming from four different continents will come together to talk about the Internet of Things and the evolution of hardware startups, the revolution of electronic payments brought about by crypto-currencies, the opportunities and challenges of startup financing, including crowdfunding, or how and why it is the perfect moment to start building video games.
The program will be divided into four different tracks: Future Trends & Entreprenuership Track, Product Track, Game Development Track and Angel Investment Track. Taking place on the main stage, Future Trends & Entreprenuership Track will be the focal point of public dialogue on Internet of Things and the business opportunities created by this evolution. Speakers such as Chris Chabot, Florian Meissner, Jason della Rocca, Alex Barrera, Luka Sucic and Dilyan Dimitrov will discuss different aspects of IoT and give their own thoughts on the trend which is promising to dominate the tech industry in the years ahead of us.
