Gil Dibner, Founder and Managing Partner at Angular Ventures, has been confirmed as a speaker on Lisbon Investment Summit, happening on the 6th and 7th of June in sunny Lisbon.
The first time Gil came to Lisbon Investment Summit was a random accident, but a fortuitous one: he ended up meeting a founder of a company that became an angel investment. “I hope it’s the first of many” he added.
For startups hoping to get this type of luck and casually meet an investor at #LIS, or startups applying to compete on stage at the pitch competition, Gil suggests they think global: “Remember that every stage is a global stage. There really is no such thing as a “local” startup or startup hub.”
Thinking global is also one of the reasons Gil believes are in the growth of Lisbon as a startup hub, able to attract investment from around the world:
It’s increasingly clear that technology is a global business – and that great innovation can come from anywhere. It’s also clear that Lisbon has a strong and growing track record of producing companies with global significance.
Gil Dibner will be at Lisbon Investment Summit, an informal event that gathers the most innovative startups, seasoned investors and daring corporate innovators, happening in Lisbon on June 6th and 7th. Get tickets here.
