Good? Bad? Suggestions? Ideas?

  • Someone suggested not to pick the first Monday of a month since it overlaps with San Francisco Stammtisch.


Please note here what others are saying elsewhere.


Web Monday is an informal gathering (in and around Germany) aimed at bringing together developers, designers, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, researchers, web pioneers, inventors, bloggers, podcasters, end users and other folks interested in web 2.0 (in the broadest sense). The goal is to better connect the German web 2.0 scene as well as improve transatlantic idea exchange between Germany and the US (and – hopefully – help bring some of those good Silicon Valley vibes to Germany).

Since its inception in November 2005, Web Monday has spread fast: meetings are now being held in 10+ cities all across Germany on a regular basis (among them 7 of the nation's top 10 biggest) and have attracted several hundred repeat participants so far (see statistics). Meetings have also been held in Vienna (Austria) as well as on Second Life.

Who should attend and why?

Anyone involved in web 2.0 or neighboring fields who has an interest in German-US business (or any kind of “bridging” between the two, for that matter) is most welcome to join. Whether you are from Germany and live and work here in Silicon Valley (and want to help spread the love), or whether you are from Silicon Valley and have ties to Germany – Web Monday Silicon Valley is your chance to present your product, your service, your startup, your cool new project or your next big idea to a growing audience of German web aficionados.

Btw, we dig Europe: Sweden, Switzerland, Norway, The Netherlands, France, Poland, Austria… come on over! There is plenty we can learn from each other!

There's usually drinks and light snacks (we may ask for a small contribution from those who can afford it). ;-)

Things to take care of beforehand.

This may or may not include the following:
