Enterprise EMEA 2017 is a great event for everyone looking for networking and business opportunities in the enterprise software industry. Hosted by Widebridge Group, the event is going to take place on May 23 in London and will bring togeter CEOs, CTOs, and CIOs from around the EMEA region. Enterprise EMEA is an invite-only event, but you can apply for an invite through the event’s website.
Greg Wolf, founder of the Enterprise EMEA conference and Widebridge Group, stated: “With all the hype around consumer focused startups like Snap and Uber, none of them would be able to do what they do without enterprise software. Enterprise software is like the digital picks and shovels behind the success of all businesses, and is a much larger market than the consumer market.”
According to the organisers, there is a lack of enterprise software events that encompass the entire enterprise, especially in Europe. That’s why Greg and his team created Enterprise EMEA, an event focused on enterprise technology – for the startups, investors, and the ultimate buyers of these companies. An event where all get together to foster more investments, more knowledge sharing and more deals.
Several companies that attended last year’s edition of Enterprise EMEA have raised large rounds of funding or exited with big acquisitions over the last 12 months, such as London’s Weaveworks, which raised $15 million last May from Google Ventures and Accel, or PNMsoft, which was acquired by Genpact.
Greg Wolf further explained: “Enterprise EMEA is unique in the enterprise tech world. Most of the large vendors like Cisco, Microsoft, SAP, etc. all have their own large events. We bring executives from all of those companies together to network with each other, with the startups and with the investors in their ecosystem.”
Among the speakers and attendees will be representatives from companies like Microsoft, Salesforce and SAP as well as investors from firms such as Atomico, Lakestar, Index Ventures, Blackstone and KKR.
One of the many even highlights will be a panel discussion on how EMEA enterprise startups can find success on a global scale. It will be joined by Balderton Capital’s managing partner Bernard Liautaud, who before joining Balderton, was the founder of BusinessObjects, which got acquired for $6.8 billion by SAP in one of Europe’s biggest enterprise tech exits till date.
As mentioned in the beginning of this article, Enterprise EMEA is invite-only. To request an invite and for more details please visit the event’s website.
