These smaller sessions deliver real value, and our attendees agree.
“There was always something interesting going on in one of the breakout sessions, and I was impressed by the quality of the people participating. Partners in well-known VC firms spoke, they were accessible, and they shared smart, insightful nuggets. You will not find this level of people accessible and in one place anywhere else.” — Michael McCarthy, CEO of Repositax
