Websummit Tech Conference’s – Paddy Cosgrave At Innov8


Websummit Tech Conference’s – Paddy Cosgrave At Innov8

Irish entrepreneur, Paddy Cosgrave, is the man behind the most popular tech conference – “websummit.” This technology conference is hosted annually in Dublin and was founded in 2010 by Paddy Cosgrave and co-founders Daire Hickey and David Kelly.

Team Innov8 – Team Innov8 was very happy to host the titan & his team from Dublin. We were excited when we came to know that Websummit wanted to conduct an event at Innov8 in New Delhi. Uzma, one of the most hardworking team member of Paddy’s team was the one who has been after Paddy to start the Surge Conference in her homeland.

Inspiration – We were inspired by the fact that Uzma & Paddy chose to conduct their flagship event in India, knowing the difficult market situation. Websummit is a brand when it comes to conducting world-class community building with surrogates of Rise, Collision etc. Surge covered us in a blog: https://surgeconf.com/news/the-surge-team-meets-the-bengaluru-and-delhi-tech-communities

Lessons – So we had Paddy with us for over 5 hours, we learnt about how he had scaled Websummit from a conference of 400 people to an annual international event of 40,000. He gave a very interesting talk to the entrepreneurs, investors & startup enthusiasts of New Delhi. By the way, we were delighted to see him love our campus. He clicked pictures with everyone & he was completely in love with the terrace.

At last, he interacted with all the Innov8rs & gave his thoughts on expansion strategies to the budding innovators.

We thank Paddy & Uzma for giving us an amazing session at Innov8. The dinner at Lalit was wonderful! Thanks for everything.
