This week’s Dublin-based Web Summit (3th-5th of November) will have something of a Latin flavour, with a large number of start-ups coming from South America. At least 16 young companies are coming from Brazil alone, and there will also be representatives from Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru.

They’ll be joining would-be entrepreneurs from more than 100 countries, who will arrive over the next few days to take part in the final summit to be held in Dublin before it relocates to Lisbon next year.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny looks almost certain to miss the final Web Summit in Dublin this week after only receiving a formal invitation late on Friday evening.

Mr Kenny has been a big supporter and high-profile attendee at the high-tech networking event – which has received €700,000 in State funding over the last three years – since it was first held in Dublin in 2013.

More than 30,000 attendees are expected to come, including 1,000 investors, 800 journalists and 2,000 start-ups from around the world. There will be 21 side-summits taking place, including a start-up summit, an investor summit, an accelerator summit, a data summit, a code summit and a music summit.
