"This conference is so well organized and is running so smoothly! Having sat through "normal" webinars, I am very impressed and enjoying this one a lot more!”

"Presentations were short and packed with information which made them effective and easily digestible."
“A very diverse group of presenters. It is great to hear the different perspectives on the topic of entrepreneurship.”
"Love all the touching and inspiring stories that the speakers shared. They gave us wonderful ideas to take back to our own makerspaces. Such motivating and brilliant ideas."
“All the sessions have been great, but this was my favorite so far. Lots of great ideas - both strategic and tactical - from people who are experts in this movement. Thank you for this fantastic session!”
