We’re selecting 5 people from around the world, including 2 outstanding individuals, and 3 startup founders who apply to be part of ALPHA at Web Summit, to join an incredible group of leading tech entrepreneurs, investors and influencers on the trip of a lifetime. You’ll climb Africa’s highest mountain in September, and then come November you’ll share your stories from the Main Stage at Web Summit. What’s more, we’ll match every dollar you raise for charity: water up to $5,895 (the height of Kilimanjaro in metres). VOTING FOR Web Summit KILIMANJARO IS NOW CLOSED.

Some Background on the Trip

On last year’s trip to Africa, we were joined by the founders of Spotify, WordPress and Pandora, as well as the CEO of Ticketmaster, Lady Gaga’s manager, investor Chris Sacca, Hollywood actors and directors, and a skateboarder. We partnered with charity: water and visited some of their incredible projects in Ethiopia.

Last year, it was invite only. But this year, we’re opening 5 spots to emerging entrepreneurs from around the world. However, if you’ve raised more than €3 million in venture funding or had revenues in 2013 exceeding €3 million, then you should email carolyn@thesummit.co, otherwise simply apply below.

Once again we’re partnering with charity: water and hope to not just raise awareness of their incredible work by visiting their projects in Tanzania, but also to raise enough funding to bring clean water to 5,000 people in Africa.
