LeWebLeWeb is one of the principal conferences on Internet entrepreneurship and innovation at European level. LeWeb London is a two-day event held during the month of June. LeWeb's first edition took place in 2009 in Paris.

This conference was created with the aim of becoming a point of reference for every professional involved in digital technologies. To achieve that, LeWeb brings together entrepreneurs, CEOs, investors, students, and data analysts from companies like KPMG, CapGemini, Telecom Italia, American Express, Axel Springer, Deloitte, DataSift, Google, and Which? magazine.

The conference program features a series of keynote speeches, pitches, demos, and presentations on topics such as the collaborative economy, social engineering, the potential uses of gaming and social network applications, consumer behaviour, cloud computing applications, funding and finance in the sharing economy, and customer engagement. The event is also known for its start-up competition, which leads to the award of three prizes for those who present the best mobile marketplace applications.

Entrepreneurs Loic and Geraldine Le Meur came up with the original concept behind LeWeb. Together, they have more than 25 years of experience in marketing, web hosting, and business management.
