Impactful and futuristic – that’s how Webit – the influential Forum for Innovation, Policies, Investments, Digital Economy and Entrepreneurship in Europe for 2018 can be described!
This year the festival doubled its size and moves to a new venue – Arena Armeec!
A new special Lounge has been announced – Webit Fountain Networking Lounge!
The New Fountain Lounge adds to the number of other special lounges that people may join and have 1:1 or group business meetings while at Webit.
The Dancing Webit Fountain and the water mirror around which people can network will be built for Webit attendees only and it will last only 3 days within the festival!
As it grows, Webit is taking on new initiatives with which to continue its mission – creating density of opportunities towards a better future.
Webit is giving 5000 free tickets to the most talented and successful students in Bulgaria
On June 27th at 19:00 in Arena Armeec, the smartest and most hard working young people aged between 16 and 23 will get the chance to see the future within the special Webit.X and get access to things that the majority their peers in Europe and the world would only see on TV or online.
They will not only see, but will have close contact with some of the greatest modern technological inventions, such as the humanoid robot with citizenship – Sophia, the personal flight system of the Future – Iron Man, cyborg – a symbiosis between man and machine, “people of the future” and many others.
The Webit.X project is organized and funded by Webit, with the help of the Ministry of Education, which will select and award the most talented and successful students of Bulgaria, the Ministry of Youth and Sports, which supports the project logistically, the National Council of Rectors and the National Students Councils that will select the best and most successful students in the country. Patron of the project is the Mayor of Sofia.
Webit also provides 1000 free* tickets for women in politics, technology and academia.
* 10 EUR handling and transaction fee applies per ticket
The occasion for this initiative is EU Commissioner and Webit’s chair of the Plenary session, Mrs. Maria Gabriel’s mission to empower women in business and politics.
“On a personal level as investor – I am looking to support more and more female founders and to help them to proof success is not a matter of gender, but equal opportunities, education and hard work.” – says Plamen Russev, Executive Chairman of Webit.Foundation
