Incrediblue: “Networking is amazing, you never know who you will get the chance to talk to” Greece-based boat rental service Incrediblue won the Startup Spotlight competition at the recent How To Web conference in Bucharest, Romania. This Airbnb-like website allows users to book a boat based on its speed, size, price, photos, user reviews, etc… or to offer a boat for booking. The company also offers jobs for skippers all over the world. For its services, Incrediblue gets 15% of the rental payment. The startup’s founder Antonios Fiorakis shared some after-competition figures: “After winning & media coverage we got: Over 4K visits Over 800 registration requests for our private beta Contacts from potential clients Further boosted interest from VCs and Angels” The reason behind such a good result, in Fiorakis’ opinion, is that How To Web was a “rather small” event, “crafted specifically for startups.” And these are the kinds of conferences and competitions he recommends other startups participate in, adding that “networking is amazing, you never know who you will get the chance to talk to.” To give some examples, Fiorakis advises Incrediblue-tested opportunities: “What we have tried and suggest to any startup out there is: Get a stand at TheNextWeb Conference, it’s an amazing experience and opportunity to build your business Get an invite for the European Pirate Summit in Cologne, the coolest exclusive startup event around Sign up for the Startup Spotlight at How To Web” (via What Happens After You Win a Big Startup Competition?)
