(MSS) The brainchild of two Luxembourg entrepreneurs, a social network for golfers called All Square, has been selected to integrate Europe's biggest and Silicon Valley based tech conference, the Web Summit in Dublin.

Since HEC Lausanne students Patrick Rahme and Arthur de Rivoire founded their social networking site for golfers, things have only gone in the right direction.

After being given a boost by the Luxembourg Ministry of Economy and Foreign Trade, which nominated the start-up for support through the Silicon Valley “Plug and Play Tech Center”, the start-up will be part of the line-up at the Web Summit in Dublin on October 30 and 31.

All Square was among 250 promising start-ups chosen from 5,000 applicants and is the only representative from Luxembourg.

The conference will provide seminars, networking events and talks from prominent speakers from the technology industry. Previous speakers have included Jack Dorsey, co-founder of Twitter, Chad Hurley, co-founder of YouTube and Niklas Zennstrom, founder of Skype.

All Square is aimed at helping golfers across the world stay connected by sharing experiences, narrowing the content and members to be all about golf unlike other social websites like Facebook that targets the whole world's population.
