The IsraelWebTour was concluded last week, and though it was quite a mini-showcase of local startups, it probably had a very good impact for the companies which attended.
On a seperate note, here are my 2 comments for the dedicated blog which was covering this event:
- Without putting the companies logos at the front page, you really miss on visibility. People will first click on the logos to check the sites, then maybe start sifting through the posts and find the list of participating companies.
- I find the "What is your competitive advantage as being an Israeli based company" question quite useless and noisy. People don't care really how our culture plays a role in these applications. They want to know what's behind the app, and why is it good for them. People all over the world are creating the Web 2.0 sphere - it's a global phenomenon, and other countries have also great minds and great developers. We can leave our patriotism for better events, and maybe try to use this promotion opportunity to speak about the user experience and features, and not why we love humus and think we are exceptional in programming.
(I'm not harshly criticizing, just plain honest opinion :)
