    Nice event. Meeting new people is always a plus and I met a few....and a saw folks who I had not seen for months. So that was good. I learn about about tech community when people pitch their companies

    Hello all! I am a senior mobile and web UI UX designer visiting from California for 3 weeks. Please email me at [masked] if anyone would like to setup a time to meet. I also have relationships with a handful of excellent developers that I work with to execute on any backend or frontend needs.

    Would have been nice to have a longer Q&A session for each company as I believe that where the audience could have learned what VCs ask...
