15 Ukrainian startups selected at Dublin’s Web Summit – but come back home without prizes

Every year the tech world gathers in Dublin at the Web Summit to meet and learn from the people changing the world, faster and further than any generation in history. The conference is Europe’s largest tech event with Internet technology as its primary topic. This year it brought together 22,000 attendees, including companies from the Fortune 500, some of the world’s most exciting startups, investors and media from 90+ countries across the globe over November 4-6.

No fewer than 15 Ukrainian startups were selected to exhibit this year at the Web Summit – which accepted only 10% of out of 2,000 applicants this year. However, none of these Ukrainian companies won a prize, while BaseStone, a UK-based developer of solutions for design-review processes, and Portugal’s Codacy, whose platform automatically reviews software code, won the jury’s hearts.

Here is a brief presentation of the 15 Ukrainian nominees.
