Leading our start-pup to the websummit

PitPat goes to websummit

Last week the PitPat team made their way over to Dublin for websummit, one of the world’s biggest tech conferences.  Over 40,000 people were there from startups to giants like Facebook, Google and Amazon. The show provides a lens into the future, with every company showing off their new ideas and innovations.

It’s a bit like TED talks crossed with Borough Market – an event packed full of inspiring ideas, bright minds and colourful people showing you what they’ve got to offer – a tech-lover’s wonderland.

We even discovered our own tail-wagging community as we rubbed noses with a dozen fellow pet-tech companies flying the flag for this new and growing market. All had apps or products that will improve the lives of dogs and their owners through technology. We were able to share ideas and experiences and made some new friends along the way plus we even got a mention on the El Passion retrospective blog.

If you like PitPat, you should definitely take a look at these pawsome companies:

HappyTail is a social network for dog lovers that connects you with other dog loving people to find new dog friends and dog sitters.

DOTT is a smart dog tag that aims to put an end to lost pets. It pairs with your phone to create a virtual leash, giving you a warning if they ever go out of range. 

PoochPal is a Friend Finder app for Your Dog, connecting fur friends around the corner or in your hand to sniff, chat, meet and play. We can’t wait for next year!
