What is Web Monday?

Web Monday was started in late 2005 in an effort to help spread those sunny Silicon Valley vibes to Germany. It's an informal, community-driven event that aims to connect the German, Austrian and Swiss web 2.0 and internet startup scene.

Since its inception, Web Monday has spread fast: meetings are now being held in 40+ cities all across Germany, Austria and in Switzerland on a regular basis and have attracted 1,000+ repeat participants so far. Meetings have also been held in Silicon Valley and on Second Life.

Very broadly put, Web Monday is about the future of the internet (especially insofar as it may be invented in Germany). 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 in the Bay Area (and want to help spread the good vibes), or whether you're from here and would like to connect with folks from overseas – Web Monday Silicon Valley is your chance to present your product, your service, your startup, or your next big idea to a growing audience of German web aficionados (some local, some watching via the web). Plus, there's food and drinks!
