Wasn’t expecting such a high level of the conference, next we’ll definitely prepare better.
Thank you for interesting and insightful. I’d like to discover all Latvian startup contact information and meet them.
Really excited to find such high-level event, where I’ve followed discussions and presentations till very end. Anyway, you got one more fan for your well-organized events!
Aim of my attendance was to feel the mood of the startup first step planning and its execution. I got a number of sophisticated advices and feedbacks, so I believe it was a valuable experience.
