    In just a few weeks another Next Web Conference 2008 will take place in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. We will have a great group of inspiring speakers such as Robert Scoble, Gil Penchina, Nova Spivack, Werner Vogels and Leah Culver.

    Next to these speakers 24 selected start-ups will present themselves in short (5 minute) presentations. The best and most talented start-ups get a chance to pitch their company to an international crowd of early adopters, journalists and VCs on main stage.

    But today we can announce another great keynote speaker: Adeo Ressi from TheFunded.com

    We are very happy that Adeo will join us in Amsterdam and expect a lot from his keynote. TheFunded.com, a Web site that lets entrepreneurs rate, compare and criticize venture capitalists, has dramatically changed the Venture Capital landscape. It has given entrepreneurs a view into a world previously hidden.

    Adeo has some very insightful advice for starting (and seasoned) entrepreneurs so don’t miss this presentation!
