The 2022 Breakout Startups of Web Summit

The 2022 Breakout Startups of Web Summit

Sarah Zou Business Operations

November 2022

Each year, the Web Summit conference selects a group of startups that they deem the Breakout Startups of the year and gives them an opportunity to pitch their product or service on the main stage. We were lucky to be included this season, which meant we got a preview of some of the hottest new companies that we expect the world to be buzzing about soon.

As product nerds ourselves, we’ve already started using two beta products that we saw at the conference, and figured we’d share the inside scoop for fellow early-adopters who like to test out the latest tech. There’s a little for everyone: from B2B to B2C with Fintech, Web3, Greentech and more! 

Without further ado, here is the full list of Breakout Startups of Web Summit 2022. We can't wait to see where some of our pre-seed peers will be in a year's time, and will be following our series A and B mentors closely on how to navigate the road ahead.
