Nice organisation, lot of valueable people. Like other start ups and ideas. Speakers on high level. To might be better: join area of exibition, not split them.

Great line up of speakers but as they join from a backroom and leave via a backroom right away it presents little opportunity to meet them....maybe not a train smash for some but if you like networking makes it hard.

The acoustics and sound system were very poor in the main hall, so that I struggled to understand what some people were saying. The acoustics at the Happy Hour outside were also terrible, so that we had to shout at each other to be able to hold a conversation. The event format seemed really old-fashioned and lacking opportunities for interaction among the delegates. The joining instructions didn't even have the full address of the venue, or signs outside to show where it was. I walked up and down the street before realising where the event actually was.

It was a great conference with top speakers. Especially Dame Stephanie Shirley, John Collison and Ilyas Khan really stood out. I wish there was more time for networking and at times coffee ran out. The atmosphere was really buzzing and you could tell people loved being there. Which is not the case for many conferences. I will be coming again next year for sure.

Excellent business opportunities!

Really interesting speakers great location

Audio was coupling on the main stage during three consecutive presentations.

user picture Visitor

I liked the ability to speak to people and learn about their ideas.

Some great startups exhibiting and pitching and some good, if cramped networking. BUT, I would NOT pay for this event again. Just not enough valuable insights and learnings and the sound quality in the main stage was just so poor it's frankly not fit for purpose. On a hot day, you might expect aircon and refreshments but other than an iced water dispenser you had to dive next door. As a paying delegate I was also quite annoyed that I could not get a printed programme; not enough printed!!

user picture Visitor

It definitely was and I was even given a chance to pitch my startup

user picture Visitor

Little bit of chaos. but otherwise amazing speakers - great crowd. Thank You

Speakers were great however the sound on the main stage wasn't that good. Not enough refreshments for all the attendees. Very few business opportunities, most of the people there were startupists.

Great people, nice energy. Would like to see more investors. Great staff

user picture Visitor

Insufficient firesides for startup recruitment

user picture Visitor

Make the talks more about the entrepreneurs (and less about the soeakers).

user picture Visitor

There was not enough lunch for everyone. Didn't see the agenda before hand. Wasn't easy to spot it. Speakers leaving rushed after speaking leaving no chance for interaction.

user picture Visitor

Great place for meeting other startups and keeping up to date with what's new in the field

user picture Visitor

It would be good to ensure speakers are aware of nin English participants and try to speak a bit more clearly- or perhaps it was the acustics and echo of the mic. Loved the opening remarks. It was very refreshing to hear that we will make it a better experience if were less self-focused. Good lesson

user picture Visitor

Missing a networking app. Otherwise, great!

user picture Visitor

Lots of new interesting startups, well organised, impressive speakers!

Diverse attendees and great speakers

Few of the interesting and valuable connections we've made here. Greta young crowd. Amazing venue. Great energy. Just the coffee could be better :-) Apart of that really good event.

user picture Visitor

Good conference, not as much business opportunities as I thought

user picture Visitor

I took back home lots of positive ideas to work with

user picture Visitor

Great speaker but should focus more on advice for startups than the stories of the speakers
