Hopping on my twitter feed today, I came across about a web summit which is going to take place 30-31 October, on which private innovative ideas from 52 countries around the globe will be presented, (for more details you can follow the link here).
Among a lot of interesting things that someone can examine about this summit ( which is told from big companies, "an opportunity to discover the next Facebook or Twitter", is to have a look on the origin of these start-ups, in order to discover the countries presence. The leading positions for the origin of these start-ups is an interesting thing to examine, as well as the portion that specific EU countries will have on this summit. These specific countries can be the ones that are currently impacted by the financial crisis which are under special agreements (memorandums), struggling to recover from the negative growth numbers in order to achieve steady growth in the mid and long term. These are Spain, Portugal, Cyprus and Greece.
