I don't think I've been to, or will ever go to a conference quite as unique as this one. The setting is the perfect environment to forge new partnerships, or rekindle old ones. This surely is the premiere startup event of the year. - Rena Tabata, ShareSmart
Great experience overall to represent Calgary and to showcase to the rest of Canada that we have a great ecosystem - Steven Phan, Elevatie
