The most in-demand fintech startups at Web Summit 2018

Some of the world’s most influential companies have joined us at Web Summit at the beginning of their startup journey. Over the years we’ve welcomed OnePlus, Stripe, Nest, Uber, Careem, and GitLab when they were still early-stage startups, looking for funding, partnerships or figuring out their next move.

As we prepare for our big week in Lisbon, Web Summit has already begun for some investors as they organise meetings with startups that have caught their eye.
