Connect on a global scale. Sure, I can connect with people from around the world online, but there's no substitute for meeting face to face.

Global connections allow you to reach a much bigger group of people. People steeped in other cultures know how to make your business appealing to people in their cultures. They can also bring entirely new ideas to the table. Global collaboration gives me a massive edge when it comes to innovation.

Web Summit invite speakers and startups from around the world. They are ambassadors for diversity, because they understand how diversity can improve the future of tech.
