The Web Summit officially opened last night. About 70,000 people gathered to attend this four-day event, which will host over 2,600 startups and a large number of world-renowned speakers.

Thanks to the support of the Capital City and ICT cluster Cortex, 8 startups from Podgorica will also have the opportunity to present their ideas, the winners of the Competition for the Support of the Startup Community, which has been announced by the Capital City for the second year in a row: Prezla, Flash, Dixi Digital, Spectro, Medpack, Flourish, Guidi, Tiramisu AKT.

Cryptocurrencies, climate change, and the Russian invasion of Ukraine are the topics that marked the opening of the biggest technological event. Changpeng Zhao, the CEO of Binance, drew the most attention when he talked about crypto-currencies and why he decided to invest in Twitter.

The Montenegrin delegation is expecting three days of networking activities and many interesting lectures, and we hope that they will use as many opportunities as possible provided by the Web Summit.
