Web Summit 2023, the world’s largest technology conference, concluded in Lisbon, showcasing an unprecedented level of participation and diversity. The event, attracting 70,236 attendees from 153 countries, set a new record for startup engagement with 2,608 startups participating, nearly a third of which were women-founded.

As a standout moment, Aimprosoft, the only IT service company to exhibit as a Gold Partner among 321 partners, marked a significant presence. This representation underscores our technological potential and reaffirms our role as a key player in the CEE IT service market.

A hub for diverse innovators

The Summit’s impressive statistics – 43% female attendance and 38% female speakers – highlight a shift towards greater gender diversity in tech. Aimprosoft is committed to fostering an inclusive environment, aligning with this trend, and resonating with the broader industry’s move towards equality. As evidence of that, two of the key growth directions – Sales and Marketing – are supervised by women at Aimprosoft.

Gender equality, technology choice equality, and freedom of running business equality are the foundations of a thriving and innovative society. We strive to create a workplace that fosters diversity and empowers our clients to achieve their goals,” – says Julia Kurganova, Head of Business Development.

Spotlight on AI and sustainability

If the last year was devoted to Web3 and crypto, Artificial Intelligence dominated discussions at the event this year, reflecting its growing influence in business and daily life. Keynotes from thought leaders like Meredith Whittaker and Jimmy Wales provided deep insights into AI’s potential and challenges. 

In our discussions with entrepreneurs, concerns about the reliability of emerging technology should be noticed. Although startups tend to accelerate time to market by using GenAI coding tools, SMB and enterprise business leaders are cautious about the full-scale implementation of mass-market LLM models based on ChatGPT.

“It is crucial for us to acknowledge the biases inherent in AI and consistently involve human oversight to ensure that we make no mistakes in customers’ projects,” says Maxim Ivanov, CEO and co-founder of Aimprosoft.
